Is the Paths to Understanding network right for you?

You are a perfect fit for our community and will get the most from joining us if you identify with these:

  • You crave guidance, support, and a sense of community.
  • You value learning from other's experiences, including hard lessons learned.
  • You're eager to contribute your own learning and hard lessons learned with group members.
  • You'll push yourself to share the hard stuff and the stuff that is exciting-but-terrifying with the community.
  • You're willing to be open and honest about your experiences so others can learn from you.
  • You're committed to taking action and you're willing to take a few risks.

We're not looking for conformity. We want to hear from people who have different backgrounds and experiences. We take a hands-on approach to community moderation to prevent harm—or addressing it if there is a problem. We are also committed to addressing ableism, ageism, racism, and all forms of gender, religion, and sex discrimination.
