The Alumni Society reflects a diverse and influential professional network of Latinx leaders across the United States. These community guidelines will foster and protect this community so our members can easily connect with one another.
Our intention is not to be overly directive, but to provide you with a practical set of standards that can ensure that every member has a favorable experience with this application. In this way, we can all preserve the integrity and value of The Alumni Society, our corporate partners, and most of all, our valued members. Overstepping these boundaries may result in deleted content, disabled accounts, or other restrictions.
Posts that express hatred based on race, gender, sexuality, religious beliefs, political affiliation, or ethnic background through words or images will not be tolerated and may cause you to be banned from the community permanently. In addition, please do not advocate for political parties, party platforms, or political leaders within the platform—nor should you insult or belittle political adversaries.
We want this community to be one of active engagement among our members to help one another achieve personal and professional goals. However, please use your best judgement when reaching out to fellow members with specific requests or solicitations, and please also refrain from repeatedly contacting people for commercial purposes without their consent.
We encourage you to use this platform to share newsworthy content, events, or known career opportunities with your fellow members. But please help us stay spam-free by not posting repetitive comments or content. Third-party advertisements/links or spamming will be removed to protect our community members.
