At CARE we are committed to creating an environment that facilitates learning and productive discussions for all participants. To guarantee that, we would like to stress a few key principles that we ask every participant to follow:
Respect the diversity of opinion: We value critical thinking and constant questioning of our actions. We strive to create a space for thoughtful discussions, but accept that there is a possibility of thoughtful disagreements.
Express your opinions in a way that is compassionate and respectful towards other participants, respecting their boundaries. At the same time we strive for discussions that make us uncomfortable, challenge our thinking, make us reconsider held beliefs.
The following behavior will not be tolerated:
– Offensive, disruptive, or discriminatory actions (including actions toward gender identity, sexual orientation, beliefs, race, ethnicity, disability, citizenship or age) or communication.
– Sexual harassment of any kind, including unwelcome sexual attention.
We understand that communicating online is difficult and prone to creating assumptions about the interlocutor’s motives or beliefs. We ask you to assume positive intentions and allow yourself space to discuss behavior or opinions that you find troubling.
