Overview and Purpose

We take our code of conduct very seriously and ask for your support to keep our sisterhood  a safe space for us all.  We share our stories, knowledge and networks within our amazing community. Together, we all have an exciting opportunity and responsibility to make this a community we can be proud of.

Our Code of Conduct is defined by our values: accountability, courage, curiosity, generosity, and collective success. Let them be your guiding principles. 

With this Code of Conduct, we hope to help you understand how best to collaborate in the TurkishWIN digital platform, what you can expect from circle leads, our team and other members, and what type of actions or content may result in temporary or permanent suspension from Community participation. We will investigate any abuse reports to determine whether it is a violation of either the TurkishWIN Terms of Service or this Code of Conduct.

Please report a violation by emailing us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. with your concern. Unless you choose to, all reports will be anonymous. 

Pledge

In the interest of an open and welcoming environment, we as contributors and maintainers pledge to making participation in theTurkishWIN digital platform a harassment-free experience for everyone, regardless of age, body size, disability, ethnicity, gender identity and expression, level of experience, nationality, personal appearance, race, religion, or sexual identity and orientation.

Standards 

We share our skills, knowledge, and interests through ongoing conversation.  The following are not hard and fast rules, merely  listed to help  human judgment of our Community. Use these guidelines to keep the communication enjoyable and welcoming for all. 

Best Practices for Building a Strong Community

  • Be respectful and considerate.

  • Disagree and commit, with gusto.  We agree to disagree. Disagreement is a healthy part of having a culture of open discourse. When you disagree, do it with warmth.

  • Contribute in an open,  positive and constructive way.

    • Actively participate in the community, have an online presence, engage and collaborate with other members. Sharing is caring! 

    • Members are encouraged (but not required) to have their cameras on and pointed at their faces while in sessions, one-on-ones, and conversations with staff or members. Our speakers respond to your positive energy and the entire experience lifts up all participants. You  are encouraged to use their legal name for Discord,, Zoom, and all communication within TurkishWIN.

  • Guard member trust 

    • The sisterhood circles are our safe spaces. Whatever is shared in a circle, stays in the circle. We encourage you to lead with vulnerability and together keep this place nonjudgmental and sisterly. 

    • At events, in mentoring conversations and in private 1:1’s, we see each other in our most vulnerable times. We will not forget how precious that is and treasure this gift in confidence. 

    • Do whatever it takes to earn and guard member trust.

  • We encourage everyone to treat each other with mutual respect. TurkishWIN may remove postings that are deemed inappropriate, offensive, or that violate the guidelines of this Code of Conduct. TurkishWIN may also eject or ban any user from the internship program who behaves in a manner deemed inappropriate, offensive, or who violates this Code of Conduct.

What is not allowed 

  • Do not use any communication or collaboration services to threaten, harass, stalk, or abuse others. TurkishWIN reserves the right to remove posts that advocate or encourage expressions of violence, bigotry, racism, hatred, or profanity.

  • Disrupting the experience of other members. As a member, please recognize how your behavior affects others. Repeatedly posting off-topic comments, monopolizing event discussions with consecutive questions or using any other platform feature in a way that continually disrupts the experience of other users are not allowed.

  • Violations of the policy.  may result in an intern being asked to leave the program.

We deliver our give back in three programs:

  1.  WIN Next Generation:  We target female high school and university students. Our goal is to inspire them to become the best version of themselves at the workplace. Our message: “If I did it, so can you!”

We offer accessible role models, career tips and relevant networks in three programs/platforms: CampusWIN Academy,  BinYaprak and Milyon Kadına Mentor Hareketi.

 Our digital #GiveBack platform BinYaprak is available free of charge, offers content in Turkish and serves as an umbrella for all change-maker organizations who do not have resources to invest in digital platforms.

  1.  WIN Together: Investing in a gender equal future takes a village of change-makers. We partner with organizations that share our values, passion and target audiences to amplify our collective success and impact. You can check out our #WinTogether partnerships here.
