Meeting Code of Conduct
AUGS is committed to providing a safe, professional and productive meeting environment that fosters open dialogue and the exchange of scientific ideas, promotes equal opportunities and treatment of all participants, supports diversity, and is free of harassment and discrimination.
Speakers are expected to demonstrate scientific integrity and professional ethics. AUGS recognizes that professional and well-intentioned scientists and clinicians can and do disagree; PFD Week is intended to serve as a forum to consider and debate science-relevant viewpoints in an orderly, respectful, and fair manner. All participants are expected to treat others with respect and consideration and alert staff or security of any dangerous situations or anyone in distress. This statement applies to all attendees, speakers, exhibitors, staff, contractors, volunteers, and guests at the Annual Meeting and related events.
AUGS will not tolerate any form of harassment, sexual or otherwise. Harassment includes speech or behavior that is not welcome or is personally offensive, whether it is based on ethnicity, gender, religion, age, body size, disability, veteran status, marital status, sexual orientation, gender identity, or any other reason not related to scientific merit. It includes stalking, unnecessary touching, and unwelcome attention. Behavior that is acceptable to one person may not be acceptable to another, so use discretion to be sure that respect is communicated. Harassment intended in a joking manner still constitutes unacceptable behavior. Retaliation for reporting harassment is also a violation of the Code of Conduct, as is reporting an incident in bad faith. Harassment should be reported immediately to an AUGS staff member.
