DETAILED GWF FACEBOOK/WHATSAPP/VIBER GROUP RULES
To ensure our community remains a positive and supportive space, we have established a few basic rules for our members to follow:
1) Please remember that this group is for financial members of Graduate Women (Fiji) only so please keep topics relevant.

- News or posts about cross-cutting issues affecting professional and graduate women in Fiji and the world.

Photos of our member gatherings are relevant to be shared in our community, and please do mention how meeting each other has helped you or helped our other members and other women. Having said that, please do be mindful and refrain from posting excessive pictures of just yourself so we can keep the threads focused on group topics. These posts will be deleted.
2) Zero tolerance for negativity, bullying and shaming.
Our goal is to empower and support each other through our global network of professional, graduate women.
If you cannot be kind to others and mention your comments in a polite manner, or cannot respect others and their opinions, you will be removed from this group even if you are a financial member.
No one should ever be made to feel embarrassed on where they work, how much money they have, what they do, who they are and what they look like.
Posts with arguments will be deleted. You do not have to comment if you do not agree on an approved post. You are not required to respond to everything.
3) The Graduate Women (Fiji) group is a JUDGMENT-FREE community.
We have a zero tolerance policy for a lack of tolerance and understanding of everyone’s differences, and shaming of any kind is not allowed – money shaming, political shaming, environmental shaming to name a few.
If you do not agree with someone’s personal choices, you are NOT required to comment or acknowledge their post. You do not have to agree with everything you read or see but you do have to respect and accept the other members in this group.
If you do not have anything nice or constructive to say in an empowering and supportive way, please refrain from commenting. Not all of us have the same experiences, knowledge and expertise so please be encouraging and supportive with your responses. We are here to help each other no matter how small or simple those questions or challenges may seem to you.
If you are not able to tolerate others and our differences, please leave this group immediately. Members that shame others will be removed and banned from the group without notice.
