Open knowledge might just be a movement that could help change the world for the better. It won’t be able to do that, however, if the organizations that make up the movement allow for and excuse discrimination within them. This new movement is rapidly taking shape and it is up to every individual that operates within it to conduct themselves in an ethical manner, which means that no discrimination based on race, sex, class, age or any other such factor should be tolerated.
This site is a work in progress. It is intended to function as an interactive movement-wide handbook that will allow participating organizations and individuals to contribute to creating a code of ethical conduct that can help everyone involved understand how to behave in a respectful, open and tolerant manner that will help the movement grow and thrive.
It is also intended as a conduit for those who have faced discrimination within open knowledge to speak openly about their experiences with the hope that the spreading of such information will help correct the problem. It will also create a network of concerned activists and citizens who can be mobilized to take action against organizations and individuals who refuse to conduct themselves in an ethical manner.
A repository of resources regarding discrimination and harassment will be provided to the community.
