Guidelines & Agreements 

This will be a moderated discussion, sometimes supported by a panel of selected skilful women over a topic that will be read in the beginning of the meeting Some basic agreements are asked for, so everyone joining is expected to follow such points. 

They are as below:  

· Listen ​to understand first, try to not unnecessarily interrupt others. ​Be curious and remember that attentive listening makes communication better. 

· Suspend judgment, be considerate, allow dissent. ​Avoid cross-talking and reacting to what is being said. You don’t need to agree, listen and be curious about different perspectives.

· Honesty and authenticity are welcome, just be kind. ​Share based on your experience and values, understanding others may have different ones. 

· Be concise, relevant, to the point. ​Sometimes we get lost in our stories, telling a lot of details. Remember to give others space and time too. 

· Be proactive. Own what you say and take responsibility for making this a meaningful conversation for everyone. 

Role of the Moderator: the moderator may interrupt, recalibrate or re-set the conversation. They will do so only with the objective of assuring the guidelines above, enabling proper time management.

General format of the Meeting: the meeting will take 90 minutes following the agenda below (modifications may apply):
