Forum code of

Diversity and inclusion make our
community strong

Design leadership isn’t limited—and we encourage participation from people with the most varied backgrounds as possible.

Our goal is to maintain a safe, helpful, and friendly community for everyone—regardless of experience, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, personal appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, age, religion, nationality, or other defining characteristics.

This code, and related procedures, also apply to unacceptable behavior occurring outside the scope of community activities, in all community venues—online and in-person—as well as in all one-on-one communications, and anywhere such behavior has the potential to adversely affect the safety and well-being of community members.
