Whether you’re at the Sand Box every day, once a month, or strictly remote, whatever level of experience, background, or industry you come from, this is YOUR clubhouse.
In order to make sure this community can be home to everyone, we’ve put together a few guidelines.
We expect members…
To take care of themselves, each other, and this place.
Be kind to each other, and to yourself. Create opportunities to collaborate with one another, and invite others to do so. Take care of our clubhouse as if it’s your home (or better). Leave spaces better than you found them. Encourage others in their endeavors, and respect each other’s privacy. Treat others with the professionalism, warmth, and respect with which you would like to be treated.
To ensure all our members feel safe and comfortable… Sand Box cares about creating an open and welcoming community, and we are committed to making membership a respectful and harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of gender, gender identity and expression, sex, sexual orientation, disability, neuro(a)typicality, physical appearance, body size, race, ethnicity, national origin, immigration status, age, political affiliation, or religion.
This Code of Conduct applies to our physical space at 904 Park Avenue, outside of Sand Box at community-related social activities, and online in both public and private channels.
