Online Community Guidelines

Give More Than You Take

What makes a community amazing is when members are more focused on helping each other, than on helping themselves. Be as helpful as possible and everyone benefits!

No Hate Speech or Bullying

You should respectfully challenge ideas, but never attack the person. Help us make sure that everyone feels safe in the CMX community. Bullying of any kind isn't allowed, and degrading comments will not be tolerated.

No Self-Promotion Outside of Dedicated Promotion Channels

Please only share your events, links, or articles in dedicated promotion channels (#events, #resources, #random). Do not use Direct Messaging as a channel of acquisition. If anybody sends you a message with an intention of acquisition, or inviting you to join their brand, please send an email to to let us know.

No Job Postings or Events Outside of Dedicated Channels

Please only share posts about job openings in our #job-opportunities channel, and posts about upcoming events in #events. Job opening or event posts outside of these channels will be removed.

Context and Relevance

Please don't post a random link to something, or a thought with no context. We encourage you to focus on starting a conversation (always make sure to explain why you’re sharing a link, image, or thought, and what other members can learn)!

Our Community Values

Be Generous

Community is in our DNA and essential to who we are. We live for the moments where we can step up to help another community member learn and grow in their career without asking for anything in return. We believe when one of us wins, we all win. We share our learnings with radical transparency. We leave no member behind.

Be Groundbreaking

CMX is a community for the bold and ambitious. We believe that community is the future of business and that we have an opportunity and responsibility to shape that future. We’re constantly experimenting and innovating. We challenge ourselves to grow and build new systems that future generations of community builders will benefit from.

Be Actively Inclusive

We believe that building inclusive spaces isn’t just the right thing to do — it also makes our community more valuable. We don’t expect our community to organically become diverse, equitable, and inclusive — we know we need to take an active role. We make sure that everyone in the industry can learn from the lessons we share, not just a select few. We seek out unheard voices and step back to make space for those voices. We work together to check our biases and improve.
