The members of the Plantory’s community are committed to using fairness, transparency, respect, and flexibility to guide our work and interaction. The Plantory network seeks to go beyond cooperation to a place of true collaboration and innovation in the joint pursuit of our social missions. Everyone needs to feel welcome, comfortable and empowered while we work together to improve ourselves, our organizations, and our communities.


Community Agreement


1. I agree to actively maintain and contribute to a safe, positive, welcoming, and inclusive environment, recognizing that safety and inclusion take different forms for different people. We agree to be as considerate as possible to others’ experiences.


2. I agree to respect and actively listen to others, openly and honestly engage with the Plantory community, and consider views that are different from ours, even if it is difficult to do so.
