Civility Ambassadors understand, value, and promote civility. By becoming a Civility Ambassador, you are communicating your commitment to civility, joining a community of likeminded individuals, and gaining access to helpful tools that will allow you to effectively articulate the value of civility.


The Civility Scorecard is an objective resource that generates independent scoring about difficult, divisive subjects. It is designed to encourage civil speech that opens the door to work more productively with a common understanding of how people are communicating, without the influence of our own subjective bias.


Small businesses, media businesses, and enterprises can all become Certified Civil, which demonstrates credibility and leads to confidence and trust when working with your organization.
