Expectations for all Members, Attendees, Speakers, Mentors, and Sponsors

ProductTankRTP builds and supports the local Triangle (Raleigh/Durham/Chapel Hill) community of practitioners who focus on crafting great products. We share knowledge and help increase the awareness and value of Product Management as a discipline.

To promote a cooperative, collaborative culture, and the strongest, most knowledgeable group of product management professionals possible, ProductTankRTP supports and encourages diversity of all kinds from our members. Open dialogue is encouraged and all perspectives are appreciated. Our group is a safe space for all practitioners and anyone interested in learning more about product management.

To this end, we expect all members and participants to treat one another with respect.  We do not tolerate harassment or discrimination in any form, at any ProductTankRTP event or other community channels.

Harassment includes offensive comments about gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, ability or disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, or religion (or lack thereof). Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any event, including: talks, workshops, parties, meetups, online events, and web/social media posts.

If you experience or witness any of these forms of harassment, please inform any of the ProductTankRTP event volunteers or Organizers as soon as possible.

Any participant who violates these expectations will be asked to stop. Noncompliant participants can be expelled from the event without a refund. ProductTankRTP organizers reserve the right to use their own discretion to sanction or expel anyone who violates these expectations.

In some extreme circumstances, the ProductTank executives and ProductTankRTP organizers reserves the right to revoke membership from any member who does not follow the code of conduct. This action requires a two-thirds vote from the organizers. The member will be given written notice that includes the reason for the proposed expulsion, an opportunity to contest in writing the proposed action, and written notice of the Organizer’s final decision.
