Code of Conduct: The 3 "C's".
At Me to We Ministries, we believe in the three "C's": 1. Christian-based behaviors and moral structures; 2. Common courtesy with participants, hotel staff, speakers, etc.; and 3. Collaboration and shared learning with others. To make it possible for true collaboration, creativity, innovation, and idea exchange to thrive, we are committed to facilitating a welcoming and respectful community for all. This Conference Code of Conduct shares our community expectations and applies to all attendees, employees, exhibitors, speakers, sponsors, volunteers, and other participants at Me to We-sponsored events. We empower all participants in our community to actively engage in creating a friendly and safe environment where liberty and justice precedes over all.
