All members of technical communities can help create a safe and inclusive community. This talk will cover both common and complex issues around practical Code of Conduct enforcement.

How does a community deal with harassment that takes place between community members outside of community spaces? Enforcing a Code of Conduct is often complex, so this talk will provide a framework for evaluating the right level of response to a CoC violation, and give lots of practical (anonymized) examples.
