The working group members are just people who provide constructive opinions and then we focus really on online mixed mode conversation which lends another layer of credibility because a lot of policymakers and scholars and so on they type very slowly online - they are handicapped if you want to do it in an online only form. So we say: “Okay use your pen, use your voice, use whatever way you feel comfortable with and we will deploy sufficient stenographers or transcribers to bring it to the online space. So use whatever you’re comfortable with. So a lot of policymakers really go on this platform by printing every forum post and by writing their answers and have their assistant typing in their answers or turning the recordings back. There is a lot logistics involved but that is how we are getting to be inclusive.
