A Presentation of Shambhala’s new Code of Conduct for Educators and Leaders

Date: Saturday, April 30, 2022 (15:00 -17:00)

(Times listed are in Mountain Time)

In this presentation, we will walk through the
Code of Conduct Hub website and how to navigate it, as well as present a general introduction to the Code of Conduct policies & Code of Conduct Resolution Process. We will highlight the most important parts of each policy and its procedures. This presentation also includes a Q&A session at the end of the presentation.

Participants are also encouraged to contemplate The Code of Conduct document—The 17 Practices of Good Conduct and the 8 Points of Protecting the Space for Everyone (click here for translations) before the event, as we will take a few minutes of the call to read them together, and comment.

The session will be recorded for those who are unable to attend it but only available for Educators and Leaders. Additional presentations will be scheduled for other groups.
The presentation will be in English. If you would like to have it translated, please contact Nina Migliari at [email protected].
