Why am I asked for my phone number and address?
Phone Number: This is how our team or hosts/guests can get ahold of each other for last minute changes. It also gives us a way to answer questions for people that prefer calls or don't often check their email.
Address: We use this info to help you find conversations happening in your area.
*We will never share either with anyone not associated with the conversation you're involved in.
Do I have to invite guests? How do I get guests?
We encourage hosts to reach out to their networks in search of a diverse group. We provide sample text you're welcome to use! When your conversation is listed as ‘open’, people will be able to find your conversation by browsing the platform. Our team also helps point people to conversations. Once the conversation's max guest capacity is reached it will show up as 'full' on the platform.
Am I in charge of communicating with guests pre and post-conversation?
This is one reason it’s important to ask guests to rsvp via your conversation page. We automatically send out all the information to your guests after they sign up, then send them reminders of the conversation, and lastly a follow-up survey the night of the conversation and a few days after. We just ask that you communicate any last minute changes to the conversation and list any specifics regarding food, parking, and accessibility in the notes of your conversation.
What happens if I can no longer attend a conversation?
You can login as yourself and navigate to your conversation and click “can no longer make it” in the black box area. You can only see this when you're logged in. The host will be automatically notified. OR When you are logged in, you can go to "my conversations" in the top right-hand corner of your page and change your reservation that way. Just click on the conversation and use the above instructions.
What happens if I'm the host and need to change the details of my conversation or cancel?
If you need to change the details or cancel your conversation, go to the "my conversations" in the top right-hand corner of your page, find the conversation you want to change and click 'change details.' See photo above :) You will be able to make edits or cancel and any changes you make will prompt an automatic email to your guests notifying them of the change.
What happens if I can't get anyone to register for my conversation?
We do recommend having at least 4 guests at each conversation. If you're in need of more guests, we ask that you first try recruiting more with our help and if you still don't have 4 guests 24 hrs before your conversation, we ask that you reschedule.
How do we give our feedback?
Following your conversation, you will receive an email from us with a survey and more information about the topic of your conversation. We ask that you fill out the quick survey and then we send the feedback in a report to the partner of the topic. Included in that email are actions you can take on that topic.
Can anyone host a conversation from any topic?
Some topics are designed specifically for a certain city and the questions won't always make sense for people who aren't living in that community. We ask that you look for conversations in your region. You are prompted to type in your area and available topics will appear.
How will I find out the details of the conversation I signed up for?
You will be able to see the general details of the conversation before you sign up and will get an email of the more specific details after registering. If you have more questions, you are welcome to email the host of the conversation. You can also always go to "my conversations" to find your conversation page and the details there.
Why do I have to create an account?
In order for us to make sure you have the information you need and to receive the follow-up survey, you need to register via the platform. Creating a password also ensures the security of your information (phone, email, address). We also track our 'Inclusivv Rockstars' so the more you attend & host, the sweeter the rewards!
Can I attend a conversation without registering on the site? / A friend invited me, can I just show up?
We are only able to effectively support our hosts and guests when everyone has registered for the conversation. If there is a specific reason you can't register please let us know.
Can I bring a guest to the conversation who hasn't registered?
We ask that everyone wishing to attend a conversation register individually (with separate emails) so they are all kept up to date and can receive their own feedback survey. This also helps the host have an accurate count and easy way to communicate with everyone attending.
