Code of Conduct

Inclusion | Anti-Harassment | Respect


We work hard to create a climate where people are motivated to do and be their very best. As such, DevReach is dedicated to providing an inclusive harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expressions, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religion or lack thereof.

We welcome all to our conference and want everyone to feel safe and comfortable. To that end, we do not tolerate harassment of conference attendees, speakers, sponsors and any others involved in any form.

In the words of author Henry James, “Three things in human life are important. The first is to be kind. The second is to be kind. And the third is to be kind.

  • Sexism through purposefully using the wrong pronouns.
