As of December 2018, I no longer have availability for new consulting projects. If that changes, I’ll update this page.

Code of Conduct Implementation and Enforcement

What I offer

I can help you create an effective code of conduct education and enforcement program for your technical community. Possiblities include:

Who are these services for?

I work with the leaders and organizers of technical communities to help support the work you do in your community. We’re a good fit if you understand why diversity is important to your community, and are actively working on creating a more inclusive environment for participation. You either have already added a code of conduct, or are in the process of evaluating the best way to do so.

Why work with me?

I have several years of experience with code of conduct implementation and enforcement for open source projects and events. I’m one of the authors of the Citizen Code of Conduct in use by Open Source Bridge and many other communities and events. I built a program to educate tech community members on codes of conduct and other tools for creating safer spaces with Stumptown Syndicate called Safety First PDX. In addition, I bring over ten years experience organizing tech community spaces, including user groups, open source projects, and conferences — plus many years of participation in free software and open source communities.

Writing and Research

I enjoy researching and writing about a number of topics in technology and its impact in our society, as well as other community organizing areas. I’m available to build reading lists, create summaries, evaluate competing options, or help with due diligence. I also do technical editing and can help you turn your knowledge into an informative and readable work.

How do we get started?

Book an initial code of conduct review session or email me and we’ll talk!

What if I need something else?

I recommend Sage Sharp at Otter Tech for diversity and inclusion work, and Sumana Harihareswara of Changeset Consulting for project management and other F/OSS support.
