For that purpose, the Squads program uses Ellevate Conversations - and the Conversations email notifications - for communication. Not all women use Slack or feel comfortable having work conversations on their personal Facebook; it’s not fair to use a platform that makes anyone uncomfortable.
We use email notifications because it’s known to everyone - no downloading, learning, and checking a new app, and no problems with internal firewalls. We are legally required to provide a way for participants to unsubscribe and manage email frequency; that’s why we use email notifications, not a giant CC’ed email thread.
Please help us keep your Squad a safe, legal space!
