Recording/Social Media Policy:
Afrikan Community Sustainability Summit is a place to share information, not only with other participants, but also with those who may not be able to attend. Sessions are, by default, considered open and can be written about on social media and photographed. Please assume all speakers and participants are sharing their own thoughts and opinions. If you do not want your picture taken, your words to be recorded or for either photographs or words to be attributed to you, please let other attendees know. As a courtesy, please always ask prior to creating sound or video recordings of any event. Please be thoughtful and respectful with your photographs, recording, and sharing.
We expect participants to follow these rules at all summit-related social events. Be respectful to each other.
The Black Sustainability Summit is audience fueled and presenter-neutral. The group is dedicated to being open, welcoming, thought-provoking, and free of anyone exploiting attendees, and experiences in loosely structured discussions.
Because of our interactive and open environment, we will not not tolerate harassment in any form.
Afrikan Community Sustainability is dedicated to providing a harassment-free conference experience for everyone, regardless of gender, , disability, physical appearance, body size, age or religion. We do not tolerate harassment of participants in any form. Conference participants violating these rules may be asked to leave or blocked from future events at the discretion of the organizers.
Harassment includes verbal comments that reinforce social structures of domination related to gender, disability, physical appearance, body size, age, religion/spiritual system; sexual images in public spaces; deliberate intimidation; stalking; following; harassing photography or recording; sustained disruption of talks or other events; inappropriate physical contact; and unwelcome sexual attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately.
If a participant engages in harassing behavior, the organizers may take any action they deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the summit. If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact an organizer immediately for help.
*Afrika is spelled with a ‘K’ throughout this site in recognition that traditional Afrikan languages did not have hard Cs in their vocabulary and in acknowledgement that Africa is not the true name of the vast continent. Afrika represents a redefined Africa; when one speaks of Africa versus Afrika, two different world-views are being articulated; one supporting the Afrikan ethos and the other supporting the European ethos. We use Afrikan when referencing any person of Afrikan descent, whether from the continent or across the Diaspora (North America, Caribbean, South America, East Asia & West Asia/Europe).*
