Creating Safe-Spaces at Hackathons and Beyond

At Code for America, the concept of safe-spacesAi??is a necessity. We’re committed to building apps that are “by the people, and for the people” and we recognize that in order to do that, we need to make room for every single person. We must honor each others experiences and engage in a way that supports dialogue.

Although it seems common sense that discriminatory language and acts are inappropriate, a series of recent incidents atAi??Techcrunch Disrupt, Business Insider, and a post in theAi??Usenix community serve as a reminder that defining and promoting respectful conduct is necessary to ensuring safe-spaces.
