Discussion Ground Rules

The Discussion Ground Rules will be adjusted to meet the Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) needs of the group. The members of the AOBC create a free and profound exchange, respect a diversity of views, and share responsibility for the well-being and direction of the group.

  • We keep all stories and personal material confidential.
  • We listen to each other with compassion and curiosity.
  • We ask for what we need and offer what we can.

Our Tone

  •  We recognize that our voices hold power so give space for all voices to be heard.
  •  We encourage respect and understanding of what is being shared.
  •  This is not professional development work but a place where we can learn and do better together.

Our Practices

  • Speak with intention (will my words be relevant to this moment?).
  • Listen with attention (respect the learning process of all members).
  • Remember that facilitators are not "experts” on the topic, their role is to guide the discussion.
