The News Revenue Hub is committed to providing a welcoming and harassment-free environment for participants of all races, gender identities, sexual orientations, physical abilities, physical appearances, and beliefs.

We’ve published this code of conduct not because we expect bad behavior from our community—which, in our experience, is overwhelmingly generous and civil—but because we believe a clear code of conduct is one necessary part of building a respectful community space.

News Revenue Hub participants agree to:

  • Be considerate in speech and actions, and actively seek to acknowledge and respect the boundaries of fellow participants.
  • Refrain from demeaning, discriminatory, or harassing behavior and speech. Harassment includes, but is not limited to: deliberate intimidation; stalking; unwanted photography or recording; sustained or willful disruption of talks or other events; inappropriate physical contact; use of sexual or discriminatory imagery, comments, or jokes; and unwelcome sexual attention. If you feel that someone has harassed you or otherwise treated you inappropriately, please alert any member of the Hub leadership team. Reports can be made via Slack, email, in person, or audio/video meeting at any time.
  • Take care of each other. Alert a member of the News Revenue Hub team if you notice a dangerous situation, someone in distress, or violations of this code of conduct, even if they seem inconsequential.

If any participant engages in harassing behavior, News Revenue Hub organizers may take any lawful action we deem appropriate, including but not limited to warning the offender or asking the offender to leave the News Revenue Hub. (If you feel you have been unfairly accused of violating this code of conduct, you should email safety@fundjournalism.org with a concise description of your grievance; any grievances filed will be considered by the entire News Revenue Hub team.)

This code of conduct covers the entirety of your work with News Revenue Hub. The News Revenue Hub staff is available at safety@fundjournalism.org if you see or experience an issue.

We welcome your feedback on this and every other aspect of our work, and we thank you for striving with us to make it a safe, enjoyable, and friendly experience for everyone who participates.
