Participation Guidelines

MozFest is a collaborative and participatory event. To help us create a safe and positive community experience for all, we require all those who participate to agree and adhere to these Participation Guidelines.



R-E-S-P-E-C-T

The Mozilla Festival respects Mozilla's community participation guidelines. These guidelines cover our behaviour as participants, facilitators, space wranglers, staff, volunteers, vendors, and anyone else involved in making MozFest possible.

How to treat each other

  • Be respectful and value each other’s ideas, styles and viewpoints.
  • Be direct but professional; we cannot withhold hard truths.
  • Be inclusive and help new perspectives be heard.
  • Appreciate and accommodate our many cultural practices, attitudes and beliefs.
  • Be open to learning from others.
  • Lead by example and match your actions with your words.

The following will not be tolerated at MozFest: violence and threats of violence; personal attacks; derogatory language; unwelcome sexual attention or physical contact; disruptive behaviour; influencing unacceptable behaviour.

Inclusion and Diversity

The Mozilla Project welcomes and encourages participation by everyone. It doesn‘t matter how you identify yourself or how others perceive you: we welcome you.

We welcome contributions from everyone as long as they interact constructively with our community, including, but not limited

to people of varied age, culture, ethnicity, gender, gender-identity, language, race, sexual orientation, geographical location and religious views.

Mozilla-based activities should be inclusive and should support such diversity.
