Code of Conduct

All participants, vendors, and guests at InnerSource Commons events are required to abide by the code of conduct. All related conversations in the InnerSource Slack Channel will still be considered to fall under Chatham House Rules: information discussed can be shared but not attributed. Interested in getting involved? Email or join the conversation on the #innersourcecommons slack channel!
