Community Guidelines

Our community:

People join our community to connect with others, share information, find solutions, and take positive action. We know that people will not always agree, but we expect everyone in our community to treat one another with dignity and respect.

    • While our meeting is in progress, please do not disrupt or distract us from it by talking with someone simultaneously over our meeting.
      • If you need to talk with someone during our meeting, walk far enough away where we can’t hear your voice, so our meeting won’t be disrupted; finish your conversation, then rejoin us when you’re done.
  • Be respectful to our featured speakers.
    • They are not paid.
    • They join us on their dime.
    • They’re here to share information and help empower everyone.
    • Please show them appreciation and gratitude.

  • Pictures and recordings can only be of featured speakers.
    • Do not take pictures of or record attendees.
    • We prefer no pictures or videos be posted on social media.
      • If pictures or videos are posted to social media, make sure all the followers are like-minded prior to posting.

Our meeting format:

  • Presentation time is for listening only.
  • Q&A time is for questions only.
  • Socializing times are for everything else.
  • To ask a question during Q&A:
    • Stand in the Q&A microphone line.
    • When it’s your turn:
      • Walk up close to the mic stand.
      • Angle the mic clip so the mic points to your mouth.
        • Your mouth should be within a few inches or less from the mic.
      • Speak loud and clear into the mic.
      • Ask your question upfront.
        • No stories, monologues, or dissertations.
          • Save that for socializing times.
        • No profanity due to possible video channel strikes.
        • If your question is not known within 30 seconds, we will hold up the “What is your question?” sign.
          • You will have a final 30 seconds to make your question known.
      • Walk away from the mic after asking your question.
      • It’s one question per turn in line.
        • To ask another question, stand in the Q&A line again.
  • Everyone is encouraged to ask at least one question.

No discrimination, hatred, or violence:

We do not support behavior that promotes or condones violence against individuals or groups based on race or ethnic origin, religion, disability, gender, age, nationality, veteran status, sexual orientation, or whose primary purpose is inciting hatred based on these core characteristics. This can be a delicate balancing act, but if the primary goal is to attack a protected group physically, the behavior or content crosses the line. Any offending individual will be removed from our community, and any offending content will be removed from our platforms.
