Red Hat Summit code of behavior

Our expectations

Red Hat values collaboration and community. We want our virtual experience to provide an opportunity for all participants (including staff, speakers, presenters, attendees, sponsors, vendors, and guests) to collaborate, learn, participate, and network in an environment that is productive and respectful. We expect participants to be courteous and act professionally at all Red Hat events and to interact and communicate in ways that are appropriate for a professional audience from diverse backgrounds.

Behaviors inconsistent with these expectations include:

  • Conduct, language, or other action inappropriate for a professional setting that negatively refers to a participant's race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, age, genetic information, or physical appearance.
  • Harassment of a participant based on a participant's race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, age, genetic information, or physical appearance, whether by conduct, language, or other action.
  • Problematic conduct and language may include the nature and manner of communications (including through jokes or imagery), uninvited contact or following, and unwelcome sexual attention, among others.

Chat guidelines for attendees

For all chat interactions during Red Hat Summit 2020 Virtual Experience, we expect participants to abide by the event’s Code of Behavior to ensure the environment remains productive and respectful. The following chat guidelines will further help ensure we maintain an inclusive community throughout our two-day event:

  • Be respectful of others.
  • Avoid conflicts and arguments.
  • Use common sense, kindness, and consideration together with the guidelines outlined above.


If a participant engages in behavior that doesn't comply with these expectations, Red Hat may take any action that we deem appropriate, including warning the participant, excluding the participant from certain activities, prohibiting the participant from attending future Red Hat events, expelling the participant from the conference without a refund, and referring the matter to the local authorities. Participants asked to stop any harassing or other unacceptable behavior are expected to comply immediately. If the participant is a Red Hat employee, Red Hat also reserves the right to take full disciplinary action pursuant to our internal policies.

Please note, while we take all concerns raised seriously, we will use our discretion to determine when and how to follow up on reported incidents, and may decline to take any further action and/or may direct the participant to other resources to address the concern.

Reporting an issue

If you feel that a participant is not adhering to these expectations, please contact a member of the Red Hat conference staff and submit a report with your name, phone number and contact details and a description of the situation to events@redhat.com to report a violation of this Code of Behavior. The virtual experience staff will be clearly identified with a “Staff” marker by their name.

The reporting mechanisms under this Red Hat Summit Code of Behavior are not intended to address criminal activity or emergency situations. If you have been the victim of a crime or there is an emergency, please contact the appropriate municipal authorities, such as the police, fire, medical or other emergency responder.

Thank you for attending our event and doing your part to create an environment where all participants can collaborate, learn and network productively!
