# Inclusivity Working Group
## Charter
> [Ratified by the TSC, 14 January 2016](
### Statement of Purpose
The Inclusivity Working Group seeks to increase inclusivity and diversity
for the Node.js project:
- *Increasing inclusivity* means making the Node.js project a safe and
friendly place for people from diverse backgrounds.
- *Increasing diversity* means actively onboarding people from diverse
backgrounds to the Node.js project and maintaining their participation.
### Membership
Membership and participation with the Inclusivity Working Group is open
to any member of the Node.js GitHub Organization.
Additionally, membership and participation in the Inclusivity
Working group may also be extended to those people who are not represented
in the Node.js GitHub Organization but are active in the greater Node.js
### Code of Conduct
Due to the nature of the work the Inclusivity Working Group engages in,
it employs a [more specific and stricter Code of Conduct][2] than the
[Node.js project][4]. It is our belief that both Codes of Conduct are in
the same spirit, the Working Group's CoC simply being an extension of
Node.js' CoC, with additional operational details regarding enforcement.
### Scope
The Inclusivity Working Group shall have autonomy over enforcing its own
Code of Conduct and moderating its own PRs, issues, Slacks, and other
Inclusivity Working Group community spaces.
The Inclusivity Working Group explicitly does *not* have moderation or
enforcement power in the greater Node.js community or Project. It will,
however, make recommendations and provide guidance to the community
of collaborators on moderation and enforcement in
regards to incidents on the project and in the community. These
recommendations are not binding in any way.
If those recommendations are controversial or cannot be resolved through
normal discourse, then they can be escalated to the TSC per the normal
governance process.
### List of Responsibilities
* Foster a welcoming environment that ensures participants are valued and can
feel confident contributing or joining discussions, regardless of any aspect of
their identity, including but not limited to:
- racial or ethnic background
- nationality
- language
- skill level or expertise
- [gender or sex][3]
- physical or mental ability
- age
- religion, or lack thereof
* Proactively seek and propose concrete steps the project can take to increase
* Serve as a resource for the development and enforcement of workflows that
protect community members and projects from harassment and abuse.
* Acknowledge and celebrate existing diversity accomplishments within the
project while seeking to build upon them.
* Identify ways to measure diversity and inclusivity within the project and
report them at regular intervals.
### Communication Policy
As is the case in the TSC, the Inclusivity Working Group seeks to be as
transparent and public in its communications as possible.
However, due to the nature of the work the WG engages in, it is necessary
that some private and invite-only spaces exist.
Private spaces will specifically be created to discuss:
- Incident Reporting
- Incident Response
- Early Policy Discussions
All private communication will be anonymized and posted publicly for discussion.
In no way will any binding decisions be made in private. All decisions will be
either line items in public reports or, for larger topics, be summarized in public
issues, specifically to receive structured community feedback for no less than a
one week review period.
We believe that private spaces will mitigate the intense, often unintended public
backlash people can often incur when dealing with an inclusivity situation. The
goal for the private spaces is to create a safe space for education and understanding.
