We do not condone harassment or bullying, and don’t want to see it associated with Pitch Wars. While we have no legal authority, we will do everything in our power to put a halt to it in our contest and on our hashtags.
The Pitch Wars leadership reserves the right to remove anybody from the competition for any reason, and while we would prefer not to do that, we will if that’s what it takes.
If you feel like you’re being harassed and you want help, please reach out. You can contact Pitch Wars leadership at firstname.lastname@example.org, via our twitter, anonymously via our Curious Cat, or via any Pitch Wars mentor and they will help you contact the right people. We are a supportive community and will do whatever we can to help. If you feel that you are in immediate danger, we encourage you to contact the authorities.
While there is sometimes debate on what is and isn’t harassment, we will err on the side of protecting the most vulnerable members of our community.
