How does one become a stellar member 🌟of the Generation She Community?
Community Core Values
Hospitality: Make space, and others feel welcome.
Generosity: Share opportunities and resources, and offer help without expecting something in return.
Growth mindset: We’re all in different stages of personal and idea development, let’s help each other grow. And always remember, everyone is on their way.
Kindness: Go out of your way to bring joy to others! Gassing up others, hype women, vulnerability and genuine compliments are all welcome + encouraged.
We have several hundred members in our Slack community, and it's important that everyone is kind and respectful towards each other. We encourage discussion and value differences, but please be mindful when you post, respond, and react. Content that does not follow community guidelines will be removed.
Don't thumbs-down other people's responses, even if they appear to be mean or aggressive. Moderators are here to take care of it. If you see something that concerns you, please DM Shirley@GenShe and it will be taken care of.
Remember our Everyone Mantra
Generation She is accepting of all gender identities and expressions. Period. Our mission is to change the gender gap in the current entrepreneurship landscape, and we hope to do so by empowering and educating young women. This includes all women, cis or trans, and all non-binary and gender nonconforming young people. We are not an organization that only empowers cis-gendered young women; there is space for everyone at our table. The goal is to change the face of entrepreneurship, to use leadership and self-starting attitudes to do good for the world. In order to do this, Generation She's community and events work to be safe spaces for all gender identities. We have room for you, your ideas, and your voice.
Generation She encourages and values diversity in background, nationality, ethnicity, gender, sexuality, religion, self expression, physicality, ability, neuro-divergence, economic status, and educational background. We do not tolerate racism, sexism, queer-phobia, hateful language, ableism, bigotry, body shaming, or intolerance of any kind.
This Slack community is an open space for you to make friends, learn new things, and share your thoughts! You'll get the most out of it when you're an active member, so don't be afraid to jump into a conversation or post something new.
Set up your profile
We want to know who you are! Make sure to use your full name and add a photo of yourself.
The key to keeping your conversations organized is threading. When you're responding to a message, make sure to do so in a thread instead of sending a new reply.
On desktop: To create a thread, hover over the message you're replying to and click the "Start a thread" icon that appears on the far right.
On mobile: To create a thread, press and hold on the message you're replying to. Click the "Start a thread" option in the toolbar that pops up.
Don't share the workspace link
To keep the Generation She Slack workspace safe, please do not share the workspace link or invite new members. If there's someone who you think should be added to the workspace, please let Shirley@GenShe know!
Don't make new channels
All of our community channels are carefully planned, so please do not create new channels. If there is a channel you think we should add to the Gen She community, let us know in the #ask-the-team channel! ie. "Can we have a #design channel?"
Don't DM our AMA speakers
In order to respect the time and privacy of our AMA speakers and mentors, please don't DM them directly. If you have a question, add it to the speaker's thread in the #AMA channel (coming soon).
