Code of Conduct Last update: 15/01/2021

As Global Shapers, we have the fortune of participating in a community that many before us have worked hard to create and nurture. It is our responsibility to participate in the community in a way that respects our common Values, Code of Conduct and Anti-Harassment Policy.

Together, we commit to:

  • Proactively work with others to achieve common goals
  • Communicate clearly, honestly and respectfully
  • Value the opinions and potential of others
  • Be ethically responsible and demonstrate integrity

As Shapers, we apply these principles in all our actions to uphold the community’s mission and protect its reputation in ways that leaves it healthy and vibrant for future members.
