Purpose of every communication is understanding. In my opinion, when
participants know each other, they may communicate by using voice,
this is also way better for privacy as not everybody need to see the
face in real time.

In my organization we are using Mumble speech server, and participants
are surprised of a good quality of voice. Participants in bad network
areas such as in East Africa, with slow networks, may as well
participate in speech conferences.

If somebody wish to know the face of a person, a PDF file with
collection of faces and names and their positions can be sent to
people to get acquainted. But then participants who did not comb their
hair and clean their faces or those still in pijamas, can as well
participate in speech only conversations.

You should employ your own Jitsi server.
