Community Code of Conduct

This is the Code of Conduct that details the expected and unacceptable behaviors when participating in Sanity events or community spaces.

Welcome to the Sanity Community

All participants in the Sanity.io community are required to comply with the Sanity.io code of conduct. This includes discussions and contributions to GitHub repositories, our Slack workspace, meetups, events, and other venues hosted by Sanity.io. We’re all on the same team and responsible for maintaining a welcoming community.

The short version

Everyone at Sanity is dedicated to providing an inclusive, safe, and harassment-free environment for all participants regardless of age, disability, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, nationality, or religion (or lack thereof). This includes memes, emojis, and GIFs. And remember, we’re not only “guys” – including us at Sanity HQ – (we are people, folks, friends, y’all, etc).

All attendees, speakers, sponsors, and volunteers at events and in our community spaces are required to agree with this code of conduct. We expect cooperation from everyone to help ensure a safe environment for everybody.

If someone makes you or anyone else feel unsafe or unwelcome, please report it as soon as possible.

You can make a report by:

  • Contacting a member of Sanity HQ as denoted in their community chat username
  • Emailing: community@sanity.io

The long version

First of all, thank you for reading this! We want you to come to our community and feel that you can be your authentic self.

It is important that each and every person attending our events and spaces has a positive and rewarding experience and to that end, we are committed to providing a safe, productive, and welcoming environment for all participants, speakers, and staff.
