Grievance policy

Our grievance procedure policy explains how Community Members can voice their complaints in a constructive way. 1MWTT Team want to know if you come across any obstacles so that we can help you overcome them as quickly as possible. Community Members should follow a fair grievance procedure to be heard and to avoid conflicts.

1MWTT encourages Community Members to communicate their grievances. That way we can foster a supportive and pleasant workplace for everyone.

Scope

This policy refers to everyone in the 1MWTT organization regardless of their position or status.

Policy elements

Grievance definition

We define grievance as any complaint, problem or concern that a Community Member might have regarding their workplace, workflow or co-learning relationships.

Community Members can file grievances for any of the following:

  • Community environment harassment
  • Health and safety
  • Co-learners/mentors/allies/volunteers/staff behaviour
  • Adverse changes in community environment conditions

This list is not exhaustive. However, we recommend Learners to try to resolve less critical issues informally first before resorting to a formal grievance.

Procedures

We encourage Community Members to talk to each other to resolve their problems. In cases when this is not possible, Community Members should follow these steps to file a grievance:

Discord:

Step 1. Document the event

The report must contain the following:

  1. Your full name and full Discord username (Ex: Aleksandra Matłaszewska & Ola Em vol Gold#6094)

  4. Channel where this incident took place (Ex: #gold, #global-soc-community etc.)
