Test & Learn Community (TLC) Code of Conduct
All participants in the TLC Slack and TLC teleconference are expected to follow the code of conduct. Administrators will enforce this code.
The Quick Version
TLC is dedicated to providing a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any chat topic. Participants violating these rules will be expelled from the group at the sole discretion of the group administrators. TLC is also committed to providing a sales-free zone during TLC conversations and on the TLC Slack for optimization practitioners to network, troubleshoot, and share without sales pitches. As was true for the X Change huddles that were the inspiration for this group, all specific information shared on the Slack group is considered confidential and is not to be shared with others. Feel free to share the learnings from the Slack – but not the specifics. We want all participants to feel free to share with confidence. Please keep in mind, however, that the regular teleconferences (web panels) are recorded and published for ease of sharing.
The Less Quick Version
Harassment includes offensive comments related to gender, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion, sexual images, deliberate intimidation, stalking, sustained disruption of discussions or other events, and unwelcome sexual attention.
Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
Sales includes any overt or covert attempts to sell consulting or vendor solutions to anyone on the TLC call or Slack channel. Participants are welcome to reach out directly to any consultant, vendor, or agency participating in the teleconference or Slack channel, but not the other way around.
If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns related to sales pressure, concerns about breaks in privacy or anything else, please notify Kelly immediately (email
