On behalf of DeEtta Jones & Associates, we are so excited for your interest in CultureRoad™. All members of CultureRoad™ agree to our Community Guidelines and Subscription Policy. Please contact us at [email protected] with any questions.
CultureRoad is a learning community of people committed to having a positive impact on our work, organizations, and society. This basic and shared assumption should govern our interactions as we express ideas, engage in sometimes difficult subject matter, share practices, and invest in our own learning and that of others.
These guidelines for learning describe our commitment to you and what we ask of you. Your full understanding and demonstration of these guidelines is necessary to ensure a safe, engaging and positive learning experience for all of us.
1. Participate fully
CultureRoad provides a unique opportunity to focus specifically on your roles as managers, leaders, and agents of change. You have regular access to a team of experts and colleagues from other organizations who are all working toward many of the same goals as you: to learn, to grow, to make a difference. Take full advantage of the monthly live sessions and the comments in the modules. Show up and come prepared to share. Your voice is important; we want to hear it.
2. Explore new ideas
Allow yourself to take risks while maintaining your own level of safety. We want everyone to feel comfortable sharing at whatever level feels right for you. However, we also want you to be willing to stretch yourself and take some risks—that is where the rich learning takes place.
3. Balance advocacy with inquiry
There will likely be times when you will want to express your point of view on an issue. Please share it. Also, invite others to share their points of view with you and the group. Take full advantage of the opportunity to make your thinking available to others while being willing to interrogate it.
4. Share from personal experience
Commit to using “I” statements to share your experiences. Others’ experiences, thoughts, ideas, opinions, and behaviors are theirs. You can’t know how someone else feels, or what they should do or not do. Own your own comments to the best of your ability.
5. Move in, move out
We want to create a space for everyone to share. If you tend to share a lot in groups, perhaps “moving out” (giving the talking space to others) is a way to stretch your comfort zone. If you tend towards not sharing, perhaps “moving in” and sharing a thought or two is a way to help you stretch your comfort zone. We encourage sharing the space for all to engage.
6. Be open to new perspectives, and challenge your own assumptions
We understand that everyone here comes from somewhat a different perspective on how they view the world and specifically equity, diversity, inclusion, and anti-oppression. All that we ask is that for the time we spend together, you allow yourself to be open to hearing some new and possibly different ways of looking at the world and how it affects individuals differently.
We would like the discussions to center around gaining understanding, not trying to prove one person wrong or another person right. There are many different and valid ways of looking at the same situation. We want this to be an environment that welcomes and values the differences.
7. Take risks, lean into discomfort, and grant amnesty for mistakes
This needs to be an environment where everyone feels free to ask uncomfortable questions and make awkward statements. Without this agreement, everyone’s learning will suffer. We invite you to make the distinction between intent and impact, and extend grace for mistakes, even if the impact may be a bit clumsy and/or awkward.
8. Give us timely feedback
Let us know right away if you are having trouble accessing any part of CultureRoad. We want to make adjustments in a timely manner, ensuring that you have the highest quality learning experience possible. Please get in touch by posting in the comments below the relevant module or by contacting us at [email protected].
9. Respect and maintain confidentiality
Personal information or information that is specific to individuals who are present needs to stay in the session. Do not violate anyone’s confidence who is not part of CultureRoad. If you have a situation that you feel the need to share, do it in a way that leaves outside parties anonymous. Our suggestion is: “what’s shared here stays here and what’s learned here leaves here.”
