LEOS Community code of conduct

Code of conduct

The LEOS community is a place to learn, share experiences, contribute and collaborate with other members.

It is a place where each member, feels welcomed and appreciated regardless of age, gender, race, nationality, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance or religion. 

Our community must respect the European Union values as described in Article 2 of the Treaty on European Union.

Article 2

The Union is founded on the values of respect for human dignity, freedom, democracy, equality, the rule of law and respect for human rights, including the rights of persons belonging to minorities. These values are common to the Member States in a society in which pluralism, non-discrimination, tolerance, justice, solidarity and equality between women and men prevail.

Therefore, in our community, any offensive language or harassment is not allowed in any form. Members of the community who engage in such behaviour risk to be banned from this community.

What we expect from all community members

Be kind

All community members should feel welcome in our community.

Therefore we encourage you to polite and show empathy towards others.

Do not use offensive comments about age, gender, race, nationality, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance or religion.  

Be respectful

In our community we believe that embracing our differences in a constructive way can make us stronger.

Disagreements are likely to arise, but all members are expected to gracefully accept constructive criticism and be respectful of different views and experiences.

Communicate and collaborate 

A community is a collection of people who share the same interest and goal, and whom interact with one another.

The flow of information, exchanged in a trusted environment, the support between the members is what produces the feeling of trust and belonging that makes a community a community.

Therefore, we strongly encourage each community member to communicate and collaborate with others.

Lastly, when contributions are made, community members should always keep in mind what is in the best interest of the community.

 

Ask for help and how to report unappropriated behavior 

If any of the community members notices any violation of the code of conduct, independently whether it involves themselves or not, they are kindly invited to email us at: DIGIT-LEOS-FEEDBACK@ec.europa.eu.
