Thank you for taking our survey, which aims at collecting your feedback and
concerns about the Universal Code of Conduct.
You may have noticed that the survey included a question about gender; we
received a valuable comment that this was problematic in its formulation
and will cause harm to some people. Hence a decision was made to take this
question out. The question had been copied from an older survey and
inadvertently retained as written.
We are also starting an internal best practices process to make sure we
don't make this type of unintended mistake again. Hoping that you will
understand the mistake and accept our apology - we will do better in the
Please communicate this to the members to whom you already sent the survey
if you think it is appropriate.
