Code of Conduct

Women’s Society of Cyberjutsu (WSC) is dedicated to providing a respectful, harassment-free community for everyone. We do not tolerate harassment or bullying of any community member in any form. This does not only extend to members of local WSC communities, but to anyone who chooses to become involved in the larger WSC community of members and supporters through events or interactions.

Harassment includes offensive verbal/electronic comments related to personal characteristics or choices, sexual images or comments in public or online spaces, deliberate intimidation, bullying, stalking, following, harassing photography or recording, sustained disruption of talks, IRC chats, electronic meetings, physical meetings or other events, inappropriate physical contact, or unwelcome sexual attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing or bullying behavior are expected to comply immediately.

If a participant engages in harassing behavior, representatives of the community may take reasonable action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender, expulsion from any WSC event, or expulsion from mailing lists, forums, discussion boards and other electronic communications channels to resolve the issue. This may include expulsion from WSC Meetup group membership and the WSC website.

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please act to intercede or ask for help from any member of the WSC community, social media admins, website admins, or organizers/representatives of any physical events put on under the auspices of Women’s Society of Cyberjutsu.

WSC strives to create a positive and inclusive environment. As such, the WSC leadership team commits to an annual review of the Code of Conduct to ensure that it continues to align with this goal and address the needs of our community. WSC welcomes feedback from its members. All feedback should be submitted to WSC by emailing:
