How to navigate Hopin
- Reception – Where you are right now! This is the first page you see when you enter the event and it will give you an overview of the schedule and what is coming next. We recommend keeping it open it in a separate tab to reference it without interrupting what session you are currently watching.
- Stage – You’ll gather here for our general addresses like morning and evening announcements, fireside chats, etc. Please refer to the schedule linked above to see which sessions will be held here.
- Sessions – This is where you’ll spend the majority of your time at the summit. Sessions will only be appear here five minutes before their scheduled time so don’t panic if you don’t see one that is happening later in the day or on another day.
- Recordings – Everything will be recorded and uploaded to the Constellations YouTube page once the summit has concluded.
Will the sessions be recorded?
Help, I’m running into technical issues during the conference. What do I do?
Here are some tips:
- Make sure you are using Chrome or Firefox and that it is fully up to date. Safari and IE are not fully supported as they lack the support needed for live video events.
- Internet speed recommendations: Minimum of 5mbps download and 2mbps upload. 30mbps download and 10mbps upload or higher are ideal for the best quality.
- Be sure you restart your computer before coming to Hopin. This ensures there are no other video applications holding onto audio or video for any reason.
- Please use headphones as that will be sure there is no feedback or echoing.
- Be sure that there is only one Hopin tab that has video on open.
- We recommend you use desktop computers.
- PC users: If you are using Windows 7, please see if you’re able to use Windows 10 on another computer. Windows 7 is not fully functional and no updates are available after January 2020.
- Mac users: Be sure that your computer is fully up to date and that you have “Screen sharing” and “Screen recording” on under your Settings. Do not use Safari.
- If you change audio or camera settings, this will require a browser refresh. This includes no headphones to headphones, etc.

Code of Conduct
Constellations is committed to building community, and creating a safe and positive experience for all attendees and presenters. In order to achieve this goal, we have put together a code of conduct and session norms.
Code of Conduct
- No comments that reinforce social structures of domination (related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, age, religion, etc.) will be tolerated.
- In all social interactions, before engaging, introduce yourselves to those you don’t know, and ensure others have a chance to introduce themselves as well. You are invited to send direct messages to your fellow attendees, but please be respectful in doing so.
- Don’t spam the chat! Please invite people to connect with you, visit your session, or visit your booth in a courteous manner.
- Respect people’s names and pronouns when addressing them. Pro tip: add your pronouns to your bio!
- Do not demand that someone enable their video. Sharing video is optional for all attendees.
- Do not continue one-on-one communication if you have been requested to stop.
Participants should be mindful of the following:
- Sessions are recorded.
- By default, you are a viewer. Please use the chat to interact with the presenter and moderator.
- If you join on screen, please keep your microphone muted when you are not speaking with the presenter. Video is recommended but optional.
- Remain professional and respectful. Monitor your own airtime and make sure that all voices have a chance to be heard.
- The event staff will monitor for code of conduct violations and enforce them as described below. If you observe someone violating the code of conduct or session norms, do the following:
- Decide whether you can manage the conflict yourself by pointing to the code of conduct. In some cases, it is best to assume that someone did not intend to violate the rule or do harm; asking for clarification or a change in behavior may resolve the conflict.
- If you do not feel comfortable managing the conflict, or your attempts to manage the conflict have failed, please send a direct message in Hopin to one of the following individuals: Lien Diaz, La’Isla Emeruem, Bryan Cox, Ko Hassan.
- Constellations staff will determine an appropriate action. This includes, but is not limited to deleting the comments, disabling the attendee from being able to post in the chat, and removal from the event.
- Please note if you are removed from the event due to a code of conduct violation, the Constellations Center reserves the right to not permit your participation in future Constellations events.
- This code of conduct is not exhaustive or final, it can be updated by Constellations staff at any time.
If you encounter any issues you cannot resolve, please direct message Lien Diaz or La’Isla Emereum via the Hopin platform or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
