Brisbane Makerspace aims to foster an inclusive and friendly culture for all members. Our Code of Conduct outlines our expectations for community behaviour which are important to keep in mind.
If you see any behaviour contrary to our Code of Conduct, you are encouraged to politely remind those involved that it is not appropriate. In addition, you should report any incidents.
It is important to treat everyone with respect and consideration at all times. This includes being respectful to volunteers, other members, guests, and our facilities. Always be considerate in how you treat others.
Brisbane Makerspace is a safe space for everyone. Any sort of discrimination, marginalisation, or similar, based on a protected personal characteristic, is strictly prohibited. Things like sexism, racism, ableism, religious or political persecution, and homophobic or transphobic behaviour (non-exhaustive list) are not tolerated at any time. Any other behaviour not listed above that makes someone reasonably feel uncomfortable or discriminated against is also not tolerated.
An important part of our Code of Conduct is respecting and using a person's correct gender pronouns and name. Mistakes happen, but repeated misgendering or misnaming someone is not acceptable.
Abuse and violence of any kind are strictly prohibited. This includes verbal/physical assault, harassment, or intimidation. We have a zero-tolerance policy for abuse and violence. This behaviour will be dealt with as per our Bad Behaviour Policy.
Honesty is an important aspect of any community. We know that sometimes not everything goes to plan, and accidents do happen. However, it's always better to be upfront about something, even if it means admitting you did something wrong.
Being honest is always the right thing to do, and any sort of dishonesty (including lying by omission, etc.) goes against this code of conduct. If you leave a mess, break a tool, or do something wrong, please let us know before we find out.
Any other behaviour or action not described in this Code of Conduct, but would be considered by a reasonable person to cause a nuisance (such as being too loud, leaving a mess, etc.) is prohibited.
