Participants in this workshop are expected to follow our community guidelines when asking questions of speakers or participating in discussions:

  • We value respectful participation, and respectful ways of expressing both support and disagreement.
  • We support critical questions about ideas or positions, but criticism of people or their identities will not be accepted.
  • We respect our differences, and agree to approach each other with generosity, kindness, and care.
  • We will share our own experiences, and agree to be mindful of how sharing traumatic experiences out of context might impact others.
  • Language or behaviour that is hostile, discriminatory, or hateful will not be accepted. While we recognize we are all in different places in our (un)learning about different oppressions, a participant will be asked to leave immediately should the facilitators deem their language or behaviour hostile, threatening, discriminatory or hateful.
  • All participants will be required to follow all COVID guidelines issued by public health and/or HPL in effect on the day of the workshop.
