Code of Conduct

By becoming part of our community, every member agrees to respect the following Code of Conduct:

WE CO-CREATE, LEARN AND CONNECT

We work to influence society together. We nurture the development of the D4CR Guide to make a change in the world. We support the D4CR community to learn, share, make connections and collaborate on something greater than any individual person or organisation. Individuals can contribute by joining one of the existing working groups or launching a new one. Further ways of supporting the D4CR community include donations, sponsorships and other collaboration.

WE BELIEVE IN DIFFERENCE AND INCLUSION

Everyone has the same right to be here as you do. Treat everyone as you would like to be treated. Respect everyone's right to be heard. Share the conversation so that everyone has an opportunity to speak. Endeavour to resolve misunderstandings directly, through open dialogue and respectful feedback.

WE BUILD OUR DESTINY

D4CR is build and led by its community. Anyone can join the community, and by joining, members can influence on the development of the D4CR. Anyone can take an active role in the course of the organisation (by joining a working group…etc). Respond when something is needed, do what you agreed to do, respect others work.

WE OPERATE IN TRANSPARENCY, SHARED OWNERSHIP & DECISION-MAKING

Our strength is our community and the work we do together. Make all information accessible to everyone in the association in our common D4CR community Google Drive folder, unless there is a reason for confidentiality then still using Drive but not public folders. We decide through collaborative decision-making with advice and consent processes throughout the D4CR community.

Our steering group (formed from the D4CR board and working group leads) together nurtures the association’s work. The board composes the first draft of the yearly strategy which is then iterated with the working groups and voted in the yearly assembly meeting. Working groups operate autonomously, while staying in line with the strategy of the year.

WE HAVE ZERO TOLERANCE FOR HARASSMENT

Harassment includes offensive comments, unwelcome photography or recording, sustained disruption and inappropriate contact. People who harass fellow participants will be asked to leave the association and the community immediately.

WE GROW WITH POSITIVE SPIRIT AND GENEROUS NATURE

Praise and give feedback when you notice that good things are happening. Bring virtual bubbles and flowers to the room. Be kind and respectful towards others. “Can I help you” and “let's find out together” -attitudes.
