So you have a Code of Conduct... now what?

All members of technical communities can help create a safe and inclusive community. This talk will cover both common and complex issues around practical Code of Conduct enforcement. We’ll cover everything from dealing with microagressions in online spaces to dealing with conflicts of interest in your CoC enforcement committee. How do you enforce a weapons ban at an event? How does a community deal with harassment that takes place between community members outside of community spaces? Enforcing a Code of Conduct is often complex, so this talk will provide a framework for evaluating the right level of response to a CoC violation, and give lots of practical (anonymized) examples.
