Adopting the KECC

We hope individuals and organizations will adopt the KECC, either in its current form or by modifying it to suit their needs and values. We’ve licensed the KECC under a Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 4.0 International License to make it easy for you to modify it if you choose to do so.

It is our expectation that individuals and organizations who adopt the KECC will post it wherever they have an online presence and explicitly state that they’ve voluntarily committed to following it.

Each individual and organization who adopts the KECC is their own autonomous entity. Adopters are solely responsible for maintaining alignment with the KECC and for developing and implementing their own process to address transgressions. The KECC Collective does not provide any kind of oversight or enforcement. We are no longer posting the names of those who have adopted the KECC due to concerns that doing so implied that we endorsed or approved of those individuals or organizations.

Adopting the KECC doesn’t mean becoming a member of the KECC Collective. The primary responsibility of the Collective is to write, review, and update the KECC. If you are interested in being part of that project and feel you have relevant strengths and experience, we’d love to hear from you. We particularly welcome people with diverse backgrounds, experiences, and perspectives. You can contact us at [email protected].
