Community Agreements

The Las Vegas DSA is a community of individuals sharing ideas; as such, we have created a set of community agreements to ensure we are consistently meeting our own goals and each member of the community is being treated fairly.

Community Agreements

  • Progressive Stack – The Facilitator keeps a list of names from people who raise their hand
  • Why Am I Talking – When in discussion, please ask yourself “Why am I talking (wait)?”
  • Step Up, Step Back – When you speak, after you make your point, let others speak
  • Use “I” Statements – Speak from your perspective, rather than assuming that of other people
  • One Diva, One Mic – One person speaks at a time
  • Listen (Don’t Wait to Talk) – Genuinely pay attention to what others say
  • Assume Best Intentions, But Challenge
  • Acknowledge when you make a mistake

 

These agreements are in effect at all DSA meetings and events.
