Code of Conduct
It is the policy of the nEDM@SNS Collaboration that all members of the Collaboration will conduct themselves in a professional manner that is welcoming to all other members and free from any form of discrimination, harassment, or retaliation. Collaborators will treat each other with respect and consideration to create a collegial, inclusive, and professional environment in all interactions. Our Collaboration policies in this area have been significantly informed by relevant policies of the American Physical Society: Guidelines on Ethics (aps.org/policy/statements/guidlinesethics.cfm) and their statement on Promoting an Inclusive Workplace (aps.org/policy/statements/88_1.cfm).
Collaborators will avoid any inappropriate actions or statements based on individual characteristics such as age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, marital status, nationality, political affiliation, ability status, educational background, or any other characteristic protected by law. Disruptive or harassing behavior of any kind will not be tolerated. Harassment includes but is not limited to inappropriate or intimidating behavior and language, unwelcome jokes or comments, unwanted touching or attention, offensive images, photography without permission, and stalking.
Violations of this code of conduct policy should be reported to senior leaders of the Collaboration, such as the Co-Spokespersons or the Chair of the Collaboration Board. Individuals who feel they have been a victim of a violation should also consider contacting their local support organizations, such as a Discrimination and Harassment Response Office or an Ombuds Office. Retaliation against a member of the collaboration who has in good faith reported a violation of this code will not be tolerated.
