Lacework Community Code of Conduct

Lacework Code of Conduct

Like the technical community as a whole, the Lacework team and community is made up of a mixture of professionals and volunteers from all over the world, working to mentor, teach, and connect people.

Diversity is one of our priorities and therefore it’s important to clearly communicate our expectations. We have a few ground rules that we ask people to adhere to. This code applies equally to founders, mentors, and those seeking help and guidance.

This isn’t an exhaustive list of things that you can’t do. Rather, take it in the spirit in which it’s intended—a guide to make it easier to enrich all of us and the technical communities in which we participate.

This code of conduct applies to all spaces managed by Lacework, including Lacework Community. In addition, violations of this code outside these spaces may affect a person’s ability to participate within them.

If you believe someone is violating the code of conduct, we ask that you report it by emailing See our Reporting Guidelines for more details.

Our pledge

To foster a welcoming environment, as contributors and maintainers, we pledge to make participation in our community a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of age, body size, visible or invisible disability, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, level of experience, education, socioeconomic status, nationality, personal appearance, race, caste, color, religion, or sexual identity and orientation.

We pledge to act and interact in ways that contribute to an open, welcoming, diverse, inclusive, and healthy community.

Our standards

Examples of behavior that contributes to a positive environment for our community include:

  • Using welcoming and inclusive language
  • Demonstrating empathy and kindness toward other people
  • Respecting differing viewpoints and experiences
  • Giving and gracefully accepting constructive feedback

Examples of unacceptable behavior include:

  • Using sexualized language or imagery, and sexual attention or advances of any kind
  • Trolling, insulting, or derogatory comments, and personal or political attacks
  • Public or private harassment
  • Publishing others’ private information, such as a physical or email address, without their explicit permission
  • Other conduct that could reasonably be considered inappropriate in a professional setting

Our responsibilities

Lacework maintainers are responsible for clarifying and enforcing the standards of acceptable behavior and will take appropriate and fair corrective action in response to any instances of unacceptable behavior.

Project maintainers have the right and responsibility to remove, edit, or reject comments, commits, code, wiki edits, issues, and other contributions that are not aligned to this code of conduct, or to ban temporarily or permanently any contributor for other behaviors that they deem inappropriate, threatening, offensive, or harmful.


This code of conduct applies within all community spaces, and also applies when an individual is officially representing the community in public spaces. Examples of representing our community include using an official email address, posting via an official social media account, or acting as an appointed representative at an online or offline event.


Instances of abusive, harassing, or otherwise unacceptable behavior may be reported by following our Reporting Guidelines.

All complaints will be reviewed and investigated promptly and fairly.

All community leaders are obligated to respect the privacy and security of the reporter of any incident.
