Apply to be a Moderator

Minky accepts moderator applications on a rolling basis.

If you think you have something to contribute to the guiding team of our community, we want to hear from you!

We are in an exciting period of growth and look forward to reviewing your application as we determine our next stage as one of Minnesota’s largest and most nimble kink organizations.

Before you apply, we ask that you please thoroughly review our Code of Conduct and Moderator Bylaws.

As reflected in these texts, our organization is committed to our leading role in the community at large and to better responding to the evolving needs of our membership and to representing the changes we would like to see within and outside of minky.

Please take particular time with our Mission Statement, Leadership Values Statement, and Diversity and Equity Initiative. While we are excited to bring on a diverse array of leaders, we will not bring on moderators who cannot confidently lead by and advocate for these values.

Most of the responsibilities and expectations associated with moderating are outlined in the Moderator Bylaws. Please also know that, from time to time, moderators handle sensitive issues surrounding the safety of our community.

While your strength may lie in logistics, or technology, or event planning (all special skills we are actively seeking!), it’s important to keep in mind that moderators also deal with consent violation reports, culture setting, and are responsible for creating a community of accountability and safety. We ask that applicants feel confident in their ability to prioritize community safety in such discussions.

New moderators will be paired with senior moderators to help learn the practices, responsibilities, and expectations of moderation. Feel free to email us at [email protected] if you have questions about the nature of the job, the application, or anything else.

We are particularly enthused about applicants with experience in web design, event planning, fundraising, administrative logistics, curriculum writing, and community organizing/networking.

We especially encourage women, trans folks, queer members, people of color, those with disabilities, non-traditional leaders, and people from traditionally underrepresented groups to apply.

You can find the application here.
