The GraphQL Foundation and the Linux Foundation are dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for participants at all of our events, whether they are held in person or virtually. GraphQLConf is a working conference intended for professional networking and collaboration within the open source community. It exists to encourage the open exchange of ideas and expression and requires an environment that recognizes the inherent worth of every person and group. While at GraphQLConf or related ancillary or social events, any participants, including members, speakers, attendees, volunteers, sponsors, exhibitors, booth staff and anyone else, should not engage in harassment in any form.
This Code of Conduct may be revised at any time by The GraphQL Foundation or The Linux Foundation and the terms are non-negotiable. Your registration for or attendance at GraphQL, whether in person or virtually, indicates your agreement to abide by this policy and its terms.
Please read the full Code of Conduct for the complete policy and terms.
Education and collaboration are vital to the future of the open source ecosystem, and it is imperative to us that everyone in the community that wants to participate feels welcome to do so regardless of gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, race, ethnicity, age, religion or economic status. Our code of conduct outlines our expectations for all those who participate in our community, as well as the consequences for unacceptable behavior.
We offer diversity and need based scholarships and have considered a broad range of both onsite resources and emergency resources as well as a health & safety policy.
If you have ideas on how we can create a more inclusive event, please do not hesitate to let us know. Contact Emily Ruf, Senior Event Manager, at email@example.com.
Our attendees’ health and safety remain our top priority as we continue to monitor COVID-19 and look to local, CDC and WHO guidelines to make the best and most informed decisions around onsite safety and requirements.
Masks are recommended, but not required, to be worn at the event.
At this time, proof of vaccine or a negative COVID test is NOT required to attend the event in person.
All in-person attendance requirements are subject to change based on local guidelines. Registered attendees will be notified 1 month prior to the event of any updates to our mask mandate and other on-site health & safety requirements.
Please expect the following measures to be in place at the event.
At a minimum, we will be following all mandated venue, municipality, and CDC guidelines. This list, and all protocols, are subject to change should there be a change if local municipality and health agency guidelines indicate or require that they should change. We will do everything we can to provide any updates as early as possible.
If you are traveling to the United States, review the entry requirements from your country of origin here. With the ever-changing COVID-19 guidelines, we highly suggest visiting the CDC website regularly for the most up-to-date information as your trip nears. Changes and updates are typically marked at the top of the page. Read carefully to ensure you have the most recent information regarding travel rules and regulations based on your country of origin. The requirements may change so continue to check back regularly.
If you aren’t feeling well, please watch for COVID-19 symptoms. Depending on your symptoms and how unwell you feel, please take an at-home COVID test (we highly recommend traveling with your own tests) or go to the nearest testing facility, urgent care, or hospital.
If you have chest pain or shortness of breath, we advise you to call 911 or go directly to the Emergency Room.

At Registration, attendees can pick up communication stickers to add to their badges. Communication stickers indicate an attendee’s requested level of interaction with both other attendees and press (including photographers and videographers).

Our staff has had incident response training, responds to harassments reports and does so in accordance with the process recommended by the Ada Initiative, which can be found on the Geek Feminism Wiki.
Conference staff will be happy to help participants contact hotel/venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference.
If you are planning to attend and have concerns regarding another individual who may be present, please reach out to us pre-event. Precautions will be taken to ensure a victim’s comfort and safety, including, but not limited to providing an escort, prepping onsite event staff, keeping victim and harasser from attending the same talks/social events and providing onsite contact cell phone numbers for immediate contact.

The Linux Foundation’s Registration Scholarship program exists to support individuals who may not otherwise have the opportunity to attend Linux Foundation events in two categories:
Applicants must be from a traditionally underrepresented and/or marginalized group in the technology and/or open source communities who are unable to attend without some financial assistance. Including, but not limited to: persons identifying as LGBTQIA+, women, persons of color, and/or persons with disabilities.
Individuals who apply should be active members of the open source community who are unable to attend for financial reasons and are unable to get funding from their companies.
Registration Scholarship recipients will receive a complimentary registration pass. Registration Scholarships are awarded based on a combination of need and impact. Selection will be made by an assembled group of reviewers who will assess each applicant’s request.
Receipt of a scholarship does not, on its own, guarantee entry to the event. Recipients need to adhere to The Linux Foundation Health and Safety rules and regulations or the scholarship is null and void.
Applicants can be approved for up to 2 (two) Registration Scholarships per calendar year.
