Let’s Talk About It

Sunday 10:30am Ocean State B/C

Helen Montgomery, Gail Terman, Nchanter

We have learned that some things people thought were okay to say 10/15/20+ years ago are not acceptable now. But how do we know what they are? Put anonymous questions in the box at Program Ops (or into the form linked below) all through Friday and Saturday. On Sunday morning in this panel we will answer questions, discuss the topics submitted, and work on getting everyone onto the same page. (No genuine question will incur CoC violation reports or the like.)
