Code of Conduct

Code of Conduct

Code Like a Girl was created to bring like-minded people together to share experiences, knowledge and stories in a supportive and inclusive space. As such, CLG is dedicated to providing a safe, fun and most importantly, a harassment-free experience for all our community, across all of our services and programs. 

We expect everyone to be treated equally and with respect, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, age, family structure, socio-economic status, religion (or lack thereof), or programming language preference.

We do not tolerate harassment of any form in our community. This Code of Conduct applies to all CLG programs and services, including public community events and coding camps. It applies to the Code Like a Girl ecosystem, including all employees, contractors, students, interns, volunteers, clients, and event attendees.


At Code Like a Girl, we have a set of values that reflect what we stand for and shape the way we foster an internal culture. We strive to make sure these values come through at every CLG event, program and service.

We are inclusive

We're a deeply accessible community of women and gender minorities, choosing to collaborate and not work against each other. We deeply love our community. We are committed to continue to show up for our community, and those who need our support most. We love it when our community speaks up and gets involved.

We are curious 

We spur the curiosity in kids and adults, giving them the confidence to fail and enjoy. We use humour to cut through a topic that can often feel tired or heavy/complex. We ask questions, sideline assumptions and always seek to grow our knowledge and understanding - of tech and each other!

We are brave

We believe in a smarter path, in taking risks, in creatively challenging the status quo through an action mindset. We love to immerse ourselves in emerging technology and strive to be continuously learning and growing. Only by questioning long-held views and priorities can we make the changes necessary to increase diversity and inclusion in tech.

We are grounded

We’re authentic, honest, responsible role models for women and gender minorities. By being deeply transparent, we provide peace of mind of our community, honouring the trust our community places in us.
