Recordings of and resources from Marxe DEI Friday are available here. Note that not all sessions are recorded.

We begin every session with our Community Agreements, shared here:

  • We are a community in progress. We can struggle together; we can grow together.
  • We will practice active listening, respectful language, and kindness.
  • We can ask for “literacy moments” when there are terms we are not familiar with.
  • We assume positive intent and we also take responsibility for impact.
  • We value each other’s lived experiences and appreciate the vulnerability necessary to share them.
  • We are willing to slow discussions down to facilitate the exploration of complex, nuanced issues.
  • We are prepared for discomfort around these topics.
  • If content seems inappropriate or harmful, we will pause the discussion and may ask folks to discuss privately with the facilitators. If you need support during the presentation, please direct message the facilitator.
