Code of Conduct

At happen, we aim to provide a productive, inclusive, welcoming, and collaborative environment for everyone. Below are our main values that should be kept in mind as we conduct ourselves as members and guests. This outlines our expectations for everyone who uses the space. These expectations apply not only in our space, but also in our online networks, all related events, and one-on-one communications.

Inclusion and community are incredibly important to us. We believe that everyone who participates in co-working deserves a space where they feel safe and comfortable. Likewise, everyone deserves a clear and direct way to report and deal with any issues that arise at a happen space. All issues should be reported directly to Leah Morgan via leah.morgan@limerick.ie

Productivity

Happen co-working spaces are shared and open spaces where noise travels. Please be mindful of your volume. Whether talking, eating, or engaging with your co-workers, please be mindful of the people around you. Loud conversations tend to be distracting to those around you, making it difficult to focus. Be mindful of others around you. If you see someone with headphones on, know that they are “in the zone” and probably don’t want to be disturbed.

Community

Community is key at happen. A welcoming and friendly attitude is appreciated. We expect a commitment to provide a productive, welcoming, collaborative and enjoyable space for all. Co-working is not just a space with resources, but also facilitates being a part of a community. Participate authentically and proactively, exercising consideration and respect in your speech and actions with other members and guests. There is a lot of diverse talent working out of happen spaces and we encourage people to get to know each other and learn from each other. We strive to offer events and activities to help encourage socialisation directly or through partners. Intimidating, harassing, abusive, discriminatory, derogatory, or demeaning speech or actions by anyone in our space, online networks, and in all related events and communication, will not be tolerated. This includes any act of conduct which is unwelcome and offensive, humiliating or intimidating including spoken words, gestures, or the production, display or circulation of written material or pictures. We encourage all members to get in contact immediately if you notice a dangerous situation, someone in distress, or violations of this code of conduct, even if it seems inconsequential. 

Trust & Confidentiality

Happen spaces are designed to help you meet with other members. To achieve a truly collaborative community, we need to actively pursue opportunities to connect, thus growing our mutual friendship and trust. At the same time, all members must have space to work privately and confidentially and all members must respect each other’s privacy.

Enforcement

Unacceptable behaviour will not be tolerated at happen. Anyone asked to cease a violating behaviour is expected to comply immediately. We may additionally decide to take any action we deem appropriate, including, but not limited too, a temporary or permanent ban from happen spaces without warning and refund of prepaid fees.
