Our Events and Community: Diversity and Inclusion Policy

Our Events and Community: 
Diversity and Inclusion Policy

     We are committed to fostering an environment that is inclusive to all participants regardless of factors including but not limited to age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender, and/or disability.
     Diversity, equality, equity, and inclusivity are important to us. They strengthen and enrich us all! We want our events to be a place for crafters of all backgrounds. We aim to treat everyone fairly and to recognize and respond to their individual needs, while striving to provide a fun and equitable environment for all participants.
     Building a truly diverse and inclusive event is a long-term and ongoing process to which we are fully committed. Our aim is to build a culture and community that actively promote learning, openness, fairness, diversity, equality, equity, inclusivity, and general kindness. Hate speech and discrimination will not be tolerated.
     All members of the community—organizers, attendees, those who post, and those who comment —have a role in making this a reality. All event participants are responsible for their personal behavior in relation to all aspects of this policy.
