5. NOGLSTP at IU MEETING STYLE (read near the beginning of meetings)
NOGLSTP is a professional organization, and during our meetings we conduct ourselves professionally. This means being respectful, and not using language that is insulting to each other or to any other groups. Please, don’t be sarcastic or mocking. Speak for yourself and use direct honest communication; use ‘I’ language. Keep on point. Do not interrupt others while they are speaking and avoid side conversations. Everyone is a volunteer, so be grateful and refrain from telling others what to do. No one is required to do anything. However, for us to be a successful group, we need people to volunteer and to follow through on what they say they will do. If you are unsure, do not commit. If you volunteer and cannot follow through, let the committee chair or president know. Communication and dialogue help us to have a healthy, successful, functional group. It is important that everyone feel that they have a voice. Let’s strive to show newcomers that the NOGLSTP at IU environment is safe, healthy, and inclusive.
6. DISCRIMINATION STATEMENT (read near the end of meetings)
There are many groups that claim they are for diversity and authenticity and against discrimination. It is our experience that many of these groups do not practice what they preach. While they are busy trying to change others and change the world, they leave no room for the possibility that they are part of the problem. Any group that does not specifically allow individuals to voice their grievances and does not admit that the group as a whole (or some of its members) may at times discriminate is not dealing in reality. It is very important to us that all participants be encouraged to speak up about their experience at our meetings. Does anyone feel mistreated or not heard today?
