Terms and Conditions

1. Purpose

Global Goodwill Ambassadors Foundation (hereinafter referred to as Foundation is committed to providing an environment for members, volunteers) that is comfortable, safe and free from harassment of any kind. Any type of harassment is a violation of our Code of Ethics policy and will result in loss of your Global Goodwill Ambassador designation and may be illegal.

Social Media: We understand that social media can be a fun and rewarding way to share your life and opinions with family, friends and collogues around the world. However, the use of social media also presents certain risks and carries with it certain responsibilities. To assist you in making responsible decisions about your use of social media, we have established these guidelines for the appropriate use of social media. This policy covers all content and any form of harassment – from unkind words to unwanted romantic advances to hate speech to bullying – by any GGA.

Social media includes all means of communication or posting information or content of any sort on the internet, including to your own or someone else’s web blog, journal or diary, personal website, social networking or affinity web site, web bulletin board or chat room, whether or not associated or affiliated with the Foundation, as well as any other form of electronic communication. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for what you post online. Before creating online content, consider some of the risks and rewards that are involved. Keep in mind that any of your conduct that adversely affects the Foundation, your fellow associates or otherwise adversely affects members may result in loss of your GGA designation.

Global Goodwill Ambassadors Foundation is a non-political, non-biased foundation and believes all people are equal regardless of their race, color, religious beliefs, gender, sexual orientation, geographical residence, socio-economic status or creed.

 

 As an ambassador and someone required to adhere to the rules of personal decorum and ethics, as a GGA you are not permitted, allowed, authorized, admissible, nor is it condoned to talk to, continue chats, send messages, pictures or links, that includes, involves or incites lewd and lascivious behaviors.
 

2. Definition

Harassment can take many forms. It may be but is not limited to the following: words, signs, jokes, pranks, intimidation, physical contact, or violence. Harassment does not have to be sexual in nature. Sexual harassment may include unwelcome sexual advances; requests for sexual favors, pictures; or other verbal or physical contact of a sexual nature when such conduct creates an intimidating environment, either implicitly or explicitly. It is not the intent of the behavior by the offender that determines if harassment has occurred by whether the behavior is welcome by the receiver.

Always be fair and courteous to everyone and do not post video, audio or text that can reasonably be viewed as malicious, obscene, threatening or intimidating, that disparage others or that might constitute harassment or bullying. Examples of such conduct might include offensive posts meant to intentionally harm someone’s reputation or posts that could contribute to a hostile work environment on the basis of race, sex, disability, religion.

As the decision-making body at the highest level of organizational leadership, boards play a critical role in creating an organization that prioritizes, supports, and invests in diversity, inclusion, and equity.

Whether in the hiring of the executive, the determination of strategy, the allocation of resources, or the goal of serving the community, the board’s leadership on diversity, inclusion, and equity matters.

As Ambassadors of the public good, all social sector organizations, regardless of mission, are called on to embrace and celebrate our common humanity, and the inherent worth of all people. In doing so, we must also acknowledge that a climate of growing intolerance and inequity is a challenge to our democratic values and ideals. Divisions along economic, racial, religious, and political lines have created an increasingly polarized society in need of healing. And the complex issues and dynamics at the intersection of race, class, gender, and sexuality call for deeper thinking as we seek to understand each other.

We believe that social sector organizations are better able to do this work effectively and with authenticity when they are led by boards that are

  • Diversity: The individual leaders who compose nonprofit boards are a reflection of an organization’s values and beliefs about who should be empowered and entrusted with its most important decisions. We believe that all social sector organizations can better achieve their missions by drawing on the skills, talents, and perspectives of a broader and more diverse range of leaders, and that the diversity of viewpoints that comes from different life experiences and cultural backgrounds strengthens board deliberations and decision-making.

  • Incluvsity The most effective boards work to build a culture of trust, candor, and respect — none of which is possible without a culture of inclusion. Boards that cultivate an inclusive culture ensure that all board members are encouraged to bring their perspectives, identity, and life experience to their board service. An inclusive board culture welcomes and celebrates differences and ensures that all board members are equally engaged and invested, sharing power and responsibility for the organization’s mission and the board’s work.

  • Equity-focused: Boards play a critical role in helping organizations understand the context in which they work and how best to prioritize resources and strategies based on that reality. An awareness of how systemic inequities have affected our society and those an organization serves enables boards to avoid blind spots that can lead to flawed strategies, and creates powerful opportunities to deepen the organization’s impact, relevance, and advancement of the public good.

    We will rid ourselves of any kind of racism around the work as we become more unified and open our eyes to help those in need and learn to value all lives matter.
