The Perl and Raku Conference 2020

Standards of Conduct Incident Report for TPC 2019

During one of the presentations at TPC, a speaker made disrespectful comments concerning a member of our community. Specifically, the speaker both deadnamed and misgendered this person. As with all of our talks, a recording was made of the session and posted to our YouTube channel. We received a complaint regarding his comments after the video was posted.

Upon reviewing the video, the SOC Committee has concluded that the comments do constitute a violation of the Standards of Conduct as published by The Perl Foundation. As a result, we have decided to remove the video.

Our goal for all Perl Foundation activities, including The Perl Conference, is to provide a safe and welcoming environment for all attendees. This is ensured by enforcement of the Standards of Conduct.

As a reminder, all incidents should be reported as soon as possible to an SOC Committee member or to soc@perlconference.us.

Thank you for your patience as we continue to investigate this matter. Any additional questions regarding this incident can be directed to soc@perlconference.us
