1. Purpose

CMS Africa Summit firmly advocates for a community that is inclusive and open to all. We commit ourselves to curating a friendly, secure and welcoming environment for all, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, ethnicity, religion, age, social class, preferred operating system, programming language, or text editor, among other identifiers.

This code of conduct delineates our expectations for participant behavior and the ramifications of unacceptable conduct.

We extend an invitation to all sponsors, volunteers, speakers, attendees, and other participants to aid us in creating a safe and positive conference experience for everyone.

2. Open Source Citizenship

An ancillary goal of this code of conduct is to foster open-source citizenship by inspiring participants to acknowledge and strengthen the connections between their actions and the wider community.

To serve this aim, CMS Africa Summit organizers will be inviting nominations for outstanding citizens during the event and will acknowledge selecting participants after the conference on the website.

If you observe someone making an extraordinary effort to ensure our community is welcoming, friendly, and encouraging all participants to contribute to the greatest extent possible, we would like to know.
