Editorial independence

Audiences demand honesty and integrity from GeeksChalk and its content. To maintain our independence and uphold trust, Editorial staffers and freelance contributors cannot accept compensation of any kind in exchange for a review, news coverage, or inclusion in an article.

To further ensure the integrity of our coverage, the Editorial team maintains independence from other departments and will only cover stories and products that meet the needs of our audience. Communication between Sales and Editorial is important to the business, however, and that partnership is facilitated by the Editor in Chief.

In the interest of transparency for the audience, Editorial staff must not knowingly invest in the companies and products they cover. Any such investments must be disclosed to the reader.


At GeeksChalk, we have a strong policy against plagiarism.


Our audience is vast, which provides GeeksChalk with the opportunity and obligation to amplify underrepresented voices. The Editorial team is committed to prioritizing technology-related stories involving women and other underrepresented groups. Furthermore, our freelance and in-house hiring practices focus on increasing the share of our writers belonging to these groups.

GeeksChalk is committed to fostering a safe, healthy, and supportive environment for everyone, in our content and in our workplace. All types of workplace harassment are strictly prohibited, including sexual harassment, bullying behavior, and other forms of workplace harassment based upon an individual’s age, race, color, national origin, ancestry, religion, sex, pregnancy, physical or mental disability, genetic information, veteran status, uniformed service member status, or any other status protected by law. This policy extends to the content we create.
