I recently learned about these collective agreements for panelist discussions from Jenn Woodward of c3:initiative, from the MAP Fund‘s RE-Tool: Racial Equity in the Panel Process (2018, PDF). I think these are great agreements to review to cultivate equity and mutualism.
Openness to others’ points of view
Awareness of power dynamics
Positive spirit, generosity, laughter, constructive critique
Full attention to discussion, limiting distractions*
Letting others speak, finish thoughts, deep listening
Staying grounded in the guidelines and criteria
[*On Zoom, to me, this means limiting the what’s entered in the chat window to relevant items like agendas, links, spellings of names, etc.]
