The SmartGirl Pledge

Recently, we crafted a SmartGirl Pledge. We made it because we're opening up SmartGirl to a lot more discussion, adding comments everywhere and just really encouraging everyone to speak their minds. That being said, we still want SmartGirl to be a safe place where everyone can feel welcome. If we disagree on something, we want to be able to talk it out and learn something about each other and why we feel differently about the same thing.

So we wrote this pledge. Here's what we got so far:
  • I promise to keep an open mind and withhold judgment
  • I promise to learn more about other people's experiences and ideas
  • I promise to share my own opinions, even if someone will challenge them
  • I promise to ask for support when I need it
  • I promise to be supportive and encouraging when I can tell others need it
  • I promise to make my own decisions by being informed
  • I promise to take responsibility for the choices I've made and the future I'm making
What would you add to this pledge? What other promises would you make so that SmartGirl is the best that it can be?
