Open towards each other (including intentional efforts to hear from diverse voices), and willingness to be respectful despite differences.

Show people that their time, energy, ideas and perspectives matter. 

Show them by providing a warm and accessible space with food and childcare. 

Show them by taking time for conversations at their front door, in receiving ideas and feedback in person and online, and by finding a way to hear the quieter folk who don’t say as much.  

Extend your hand, with warmth and respect, and trust that the other will extend theirs in the same spirit.
