This is done for humanitarian reasons.
Serenity Partner Program members are non competitive to each other. The partners are carefully selected and reviewed, keeping the diversity of use cases & partner case studies at the forefront of the program.
Team members, employees, even the CEO of an organisation, accepted into the Serenity partner program are individual contributors to the Foundation's open initiatives.

  1. 1.
    They should never self nominate their own community proposal. Read more on this.
Any individual member does not self nominate their proposal, in the case of a Serenity partner, visible conflicts of interests, might derail the goodwill, the member may be attempting to create. Therefore, members should take help from their peers. They should ensure that another peer, who nominates their proposal is not affiliated to the same Serenity partner organisation.
2. They should never promote their organisation in the community space. Serenity program and the open community here is collaborative, not competitive.
Foundation maintains public platforms such as Open Podcast, Open Research Portal where members can freely express and promote their or their organisation's work. Therefore, such members should take extra precautions in linking their affiliation in the public facing documentation of the Foundation's project.
3. The members from Serenity partner organisations represent the purposes and goals of their organisation, viz the open community of Foundation. Each Serenity partner organisation, runs a focus group in the community space. These members thus have responsibility towards their organisation and the Foundation's community. These members should take pracautions in ensuring any confidential data of the Serenity partner organisation is redacted from the public.
4. Members should take pracautions in translating and communicating representation of their focus group in the public forums of the Foundation. This is generally done, when members(affiliated to Serenity partner) participate in the democratically elected committees of the Foundation. It is through the platform of committees that these members can contribute to the decision making of Foundation's Resolutions.
