I commit to living and working to a high ethical standard in my life and business. My ethical standards go far beyond my marketing and other things you can observe.
I commit to naming and facing the toxic systems we are all living and participating in, including the resulting trauma, stress, overwhelm, and intense overstimulation. I also acknowledge the many intersections of privilege which I benefit from every day.
I commit to recognizing the ongoing oppressive trauma that Black, Brown, Indigenous, and other People of Color face every day – especially women, whether they be LGBTQIA2S+, disabled, fat, trans, etc.
I commit to being anti-racist in every way I know how, do my best, and do better every day through education, practice, and willingness to get it wrong, make corrections, and repair.
I commit to doing all I can to dismantle systems of oppression, privilege, inequity, and hate – which includes capitalism, misogyny, patriarchy, anti-trans culture, white supremacy, white-centricity, nationalism, USA-centrism, heteronormativity, neurotypical focus, anti-fat healthcare, etc.
I commit to courageously speaking about these things openly, naming them when I observe them in myself or others. While I will certainly make mistakes… when I do, I will be willing to learn and be observably accountable. I will also do all I can to repair any harm that I have caused.
I commit to fairly compensating Black and Indigenous Women, or Black Fem labor fairly.
I commit to run my business in a way that acknowledges power dynamics – naming them, respecting them, and working to dismantle unhealthy dynamics in any role with clients or business partners.
I commit to valuing and respecting fully-informed consent and inquiring regularly through relationship to ensure understanding if mutual consent is enthusiastically given, retracted, or withheld – no questions asked.
I commit to a business that is free from manipulation, coercion, or exploitation in its marketing, business and financial practices, and in delivery of services.
I commit to pricing equity through dynamic conversations and flexible price structures.
I commit to continuing my education and learning about disability injustice, and how I participate in that in conscious and unconscious ways. As I learn, I will do everything in my power to dismantle any of my own expressions or behaviors which contribute to the harm of the disabled.
I believe in living and doing business in alignment with my personal and professional values, which only matters for accountability if you make those values public.
My personal values are: mahaba ikhlas, serene harmony, attentive presence, sapient intricacy, sacred spirit/ual/ity.
The values of ∞actualinfinity are: Love, Relationship, Justice, Curiosity, Accessibility.
