  • Be inclusive and help new perspectives be heard.

  • Be open to learning from others.

  • Lead by example and match your actions with your words.

Note, the following will not be tolerated:

  • violence and threats of violence,

  • personal attacks,

  • derogatory language,

  • unwelcome sexual attention or physical contact,

  • disruptive behavior,

  • influencing unacceptable behavior.

Inclusion and Diversity

Dataspire welcomes and encourages participation by everyone. It doesn’t matter how you identify yourself or how others perceive you: we welcome you.

We welcome contributions from everyone as long as you interact constructively with our community, including but not limited to people, of varied age, culture, ethnicity, gender, gender-identity, ability, language, race, sexual orientation, geographical location, and religious views.
