Rubin Observatory aims to be a welcoming environment to all. We are committed to creating an inclusive, collaborative environment, which welcomes passionate and thoughtful discussion and interaction. This supports our broad, diverse community and our work as we contribute our best effort.
To support this we endorse the guidelines for professional behavior of the American Physical Society (APS), American Astronomical Society (AAS), and the Associated Universities for Research in Astronomy (AURA).
When participating in the Rubin Observatory ecosystem, please be mindful of the Codes of Conduct; individual Codes of Conduct exist for various situations.
Communications with the LSSTC-supported tools for the collaboration (Confluence, the Community Forum, and Slack) have the communications code of conduct.
Meetings abide by this example meeting code of conduct, which was developed by Lucianne Walkowicz and Federica Bianco.
Meetings planned by the Rubin Observatory Observatory Project will require participants to agree on meeting registration to abide by AURA’s Standards on Workplace Conduct.
Science Collaborations and Rubin Observatory fellowship programs each have their own Codes of Conduct, including Collaboration meeting Codes of Conduct:
Rubin Observatory Brand: Usage of the logo and any derivative of it reflects on the entire Rubin Observatory ecosystem. To this end the Rubin Observatory Project expects any usage of that branding to hold up to our basic standards of professionalism, as well as Rubin Observatory's values on workplace culture and diversity.
