Some guidelines to help this space be a positive experience for everyone:
☮ As always with the Avocado, don’t feel compelled to share beyond your comfort level.
☮ Anyone who identifies as female, or who was socialized female/AFAB/otherwise has firsthand experience with the issues being discussed, is welcome to post. If you identify as cis-male, we ask that you please set your participation to “lurk” mode, unless otherwise explicitly invited to participate further (i.e. if we did an AMA kind of thread). I’m sure there’s plenty to be gleaned just by reading!
☮ Please do your best to be mindful of others’ experiences when commenting or posing questions for the group. The female identity is Legion and contains multitudes, and not everyone who has experience with being treated as female by society identifies as female. Furthermore, racial and ethnic identities, sexual orientation, and many other factors can color how one experiences their gender identity on a day-to-day basis.
Bring us your news, discussions, frustrations and inspirations, Avocado Ladies+!
This week’s suggested topic: Strengths
Waffle is in leadership training right now and she’s feeling a lot of ways about stuff. But one of my favorite parts of it is having things I consider strengths affirmed by relative strangers. So let’s talk strengths today.
(And forgive me for not being around to affirm all of you in the comments. There are a lot of amazing people here and you make me enjoy keeping this feature going.)
