May’s community call – The CSCCE core values

Our May community call, scheduled for Monday, 18 May 2020 at noon US Eastern Time, will focus on CSCCE’s core values and how we are working with members of our community of practice to co-create a code of conduct.

This call will include a discussion with the CSCCE Code of Conduct working group, and provide opportunity for all members of our community to comment on our draft core values statement.

About the code of conduct working group

This working group is focused on creating a draft code of conduct (CoC) for the CSCCE community – to cover our Slack group, website, blog and in-person events. As the first step in considering CSCCE’s code of conduct, the working group has identified a list of core values that we believe articulate how we would like to engage with one another in our community.

Those core values will be shared with the CSCCE community on Slack the week of May 11th so that members can consider and comment on them. We’ll be using May’s call to have a community-oriented discussion about the values so that we can create a final version that will be published on the CSCCE website.

How to join

May’s call will take place on Monday, 18 May at noon US Eastern Time.

Our calls are hosted in Zoom – simply click here and we’ll see you in the webinar!

Video or not? You’re welcome to turn on your webcam if you like but fine if you prefer just to use audio.

As we piloted in March, the call will last 90 minutes. In the first hour we’ll hear from our presenters and run a breakout group activity, and then for the remaining 30 minutes we’ll have more general discussion of considerations related to diversity, equity and inclusion, and running inclusive online events in particular, where we’d love to hear your perspectives. Come for the hour – or for the full 90 mins, as your schedule permits!

Please note: We’ll be recording the calls so that others who couldn’t make it can catch up later.
