Code of Conduct

At NOMAWO, we are on a mission to build an organization that lives and breathes to support and empower freelancers and independent professionals, like no other. Like a workplace for those without one, and a place where you feel you belong to. In order to accomplish that, we deeply care about our fundamental values and expect our members to follow our code of conduct.

Safe Place: Every conversation, every session at NOMAWO unless otherwise specified is kept confidential. Members, experts, and NOMAWO staff are encouraged to be vulnerable to have real conversations. In doing so there’s a sense of trust that you will not disclose any important information without permission. The golden rule of thumb is: if you are unsure about sharing something  externally, ask for permission.

Pay It Forward: We encourage our members to step forward and help your peers to help each other out. We don’t expect you to entirely put your self-interests off but help out other members when possible and find opportunities to collaborate.

Honesty and Transparency: Amongst the most important components of our code of conduct. We expect total honesty and transparency to establish trust and to help form a bond that gets you through the best and worst times.

Show Up: We do believe that showing up matters. There are times that things come up but it is easy to identify a pattern. Being a member of NOMAWO means that you are making a commitment to yourself, your business, and to your peers and coaches - and we expect you to honor that.

Step In Their Shoes: The best way to get along with a diverse community of professionals from different walks of life is by stepping in their shoes and trying your best to give them the benefit of doubt. If it still does not make sense, we recommend that you escalate any issues without our team.

All, Not One: We believe that we all are equal and unique with our strengths and weaknesses. We have a zero tolerance policy when it comes to discrimination or harassment due to differences in race, color, national origin, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, religion, gender, marital status, age, disability status, genetic information or any other status protected by law.
