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.

Raising Issues at MozFest

If you believe you‘re experiencing practices at MozFest which don‘t meet the above policies, or if you feel you are being harassed in any way, please immediately contact the Festival Producer, Sarah Allen.

At the festival venue, contact the info desk and they will immediately find the Festival Producer for you.

MozFest organisers reserve the right to refuse admission to anyone violating these policies, and/or take further action including expulsion from the event.

During the festival week, we will have many alternative ways to raise issues, online and in person. If you have issues, please direct them to festival@mozilla.org (Recipients of this email are Sarah Allen and Allen Gunn)

Working in the Open

Because working open is one of our core values, MozFest program planning is done in the open on Github (check out our repo here). We hope participants will benefit from this culture of transparency and collaboration during the Festival, and will continue to work with an open ethos in their projects after Mozfest.
