Safety and Security:

We strive to make our events as safe as possible. Here are the ways we strive for safety and security during our events:

 

  • All event hosts are vetted by a member of The Mighty Staff before they are permitted to host their first event.
  • A member of staff attends every new host’s first event at a minimum. There are several events that a staff member is always present.
  • We guide our hosts through a brief security and moderation training that helps equip them with any security tools they may need if an attendee comes to cause trouble or needs support.
  • We do not allow attendees to message each other privately during the event as there is no way for a host to intervene if the conversation is inappropriate in any way, but the host/moderator can message privately with attendees so attendees can share if they feel unsafe or are having difficulty for any reason.
  • We do not allow attendees to share private contact information during the event.
  • All our Zoom-run events require registration so none of the Zoom links are public-facing and you will only receive them upon registering for that event.
  • We use Zoom’s waiting room functionality to ensure that attendees can’t immediately enter without a host or staff member present.

If you have any further questions about safety or ever feel unsafe during an event, you can email [email protected] with your questions or concerns.
