Code of Conduct

Every person is welcome to join the Prototype Fund.  

Take care of each other.

You have the right to be treated fairly. No one has the right to threaten, blackmail, insult, belittle, verbally attack or hurt you. Anything that goes too far for you is for you to decide, no one else. If you are not sure where another person’s boundaries lie, ask.

You have the right to decide for yourself how close someone comes to you when, how and where. No one may touch you against your will.

You have the right to say NO and to defend yourself if someone crosses your boundaries, hurts your feelings or those of someone else. You can say NO with your facial expression, words or by your posture. This includes when you have already said YES.

Be aware that people from different cultures have different ways of expressing their limits and needs. NO can be expressed in different ways. Do your best to understand the signals of others.

You have the right to seek support for yourself and others. If you need help, contact the Prototype Fund team member you trust.
