Comment (by iandunn):

 Replying to [comment:4 coreymckrill]:
 > in the Profiles theme there is logic that skips over the Dashicon for
 the WC Organizer group and displays the Community Team badge instead
 ([https://developer.wordpress.org/resource/dashicons/#businessman this is
 what was supposed to be used]). @iandunn made the commit [dotorg8440], but
 I don't see any explanation for it. My guess is that the original icon was
 too gendered.

 That was part of the profiles redesign when the badges were first
 introduced. I don't think it had anything to do with the icon, since there
 wasn't an icon before that and we could have just picked a different one.
 It is weird that the code has the "businessman" icon in there, but maybe I
 just picked a random one since I knew it wouldn't actually be used? It's
 been too many years to remember. I definitely think we should pick a
 different icon if we end up displaying that badge, though.

 I think the reason it was skipped was just that it was before there was a
 consistent pattern of the "Team" group/badge for team members and the
 "Contributor" group/badge for contributors. Organizers were considered to
 be team members at the time, so it didn't seem necessary to have an
 additional badge.

 Now that the whole program and team is much bigger, I think it makes sense
 to reconsider that and probably have badges for Community Team, Community
 Contributor, and WordCamp Organizer. That's just my personal thoughts,
 though, it's something the team should decide.

 > Unfortunately, as far as I can tell there isn't a way to manage the
 group member list unless you're a super admin.

 @jjj, is there a way for BuddyPress group admins to edit the group members
 list from the front end, even if they're not WP admins on the site? It
 seems like there would be, but I haven't seen that work before.
