Volunteer teams have been moderating the Facebook GCP Cafe group since 2017. Learn more about volunteer opportunities .
Inclusivity
Bring your point-of-view and openness to conversations & events. Enjoy the exchange with your peers. Connect with others in a respectful way and be kind.
Rumor-spreading, name-calling, and personal attacks or abusive statements will not be tolerated.
Violations of this primary policy may lead to removal from the GCP Cafe community without warning.
Facebook Group Rules
Member-Reported content including comments will be reviewed by a member of the moderation team.
Ability for anyone to comment on a thread can be suspended (and lifted) at any time by the moderation team independently or upon request from the post-originating group member.
Posts and comments in violation of group rules and policies may be removed at any time at the discretion of moderation team.
Additional actions could include blocking member(s) from the group.

A link or image that directly promotes a paid product or service
A link or image that reinforces stereotypes, directs to negative statements about groups of people (religious, political, etc.), creates risk for others, or is otherwise exclusionary
A link or image that is not relevant to clinical research
