Sponsorship

We are an all volunteer, non-profit conference. Sponsorship dollars are critical to our ability to produce this conference. We are very grateful to the individuals and organizations that generously support our efforts to promote the work and contributions of our community.


Sponsorship Packages

We have outlined a number of different packages that are detailed in the Sponsorship Packages document in the Documents section.


Since we are a small, regional conference, we are flexible and willing to work with our sponsors to tailor packages to meet your organization's goals and budget.


Thank you and we look forward to working with you!

Code of Conduct

The Cascadia R Conference organizers and sponsors are dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age or religion.


We do not tolerate harassment of conference participants in any form. Sexual language and imagery is not appropriate for any conference venue, including talks. Conference participants violating these rules may be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund at the sole discretion of our organizers.


Harassment includes verbal comments that reinforce social structures of domination related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religion; sexual images in public spaces; deliberate intimidation; stalking; following; harassing photography or recording; sustained disruption of talks or other events; inappropriate physical contact; and unwelcome sexual attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.


If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the conference organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the conference without refund. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact a member of conference staff immediately or email cascadia.r.conf.2019@gmail.com. Conference staff can be identified by name tags.


Photography Policy

At the conference anyone with a red sticker on their badge = "do not photograph me"


Conference staff will be happy to help participants contact venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the conference.


We value your attendance.


We expect attendees, sponsors, volunteers, and speakers to adhere to the code of conduct during the conference,
