Code of Conduct:

The Research Triangle Analysts (RTA) and Analytics>Forward (A>F) community is made up of members with a diverse set of skills, personalities, and experiences. It is through these differences that our community experiences great successes and continued growth. When you are interacting with others inside and outside our community, we encourage you to follow these guidelines which help steer our interactions and strive to keep RTA a positive, successful, and growing community.

A member of our community strives to be:

  • Friendly. 

  • Patient. Clearly discussing technical topics can be difficult, particularly for people for whom English is not their first language.

  • Welcoming. We welcome people of all backgrounds and identities to our community. This includes, but is not limited to members of any race, ethnicity, culture, national origin, color, immigration status, social and economic class, educational level, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, age, size, family status, political belief, religion, and mental and physical ability.

  • Respectful and considerate. This includes being respectful of other people's opinions and their time. Remember, this is a volunteer-led organization and all members are giving up their precious time to participate.

  • Constructive. Constructive criticism is welcomed, just be conscious that not everyone receives criticism in the manner it was intended.

The following behaviors are forbidden:

  • Violence. This includes violent behavior and violent language, especially directed at another person.

  • Discrimination. Including discriminatory jokes and language and anything of a sexual nature.

  • Insults. Personal insults are never acceptable, especially those relating to people's background or identity.

  • Harrassment. This includes everything above and any other unwanted behaviors including giving someone unwanted attention either in person or online.

Overall, be good to each other. We belong to this community because we share common interests. If we remember that, these guidelines will come naturally.
