Code of Conduct
ICMA is committed to providing a safe and productive meeting environment that fosters open dialogue and the exchange of scientific ideas, promotes equal opportunities and treatment for all participants, and is free of harassment and discrimination. All participants are expected to treat others with respect and consideration, follow venue rules, and alert staff or security of any dangerous situations or anyone in distress. Speakers are expected to uphold standards of scientific integrity and professional ethics. This includes notifying ICMA staff in advance of the meeting about any possible conflicts of interest.
ICMA recognizes that there are areas of science that are controversial. The ICMA Annual Meeting can serve as an effective forum to consider and debate science-relevant viewpoints in an orderly, respectful, and fair manner. The policies herein apply to all attendees, speakers, exhibitors, staff, contractors, volunteers, and guests at the Annual Meeting and related events.
What is Harassment?
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 this policy, as is reporting an incident in bad faith.
The university has established Sexual Harassment and Non-discrimination Policies that apply to University faculty, staff, students, and visitors. Conference Attendees who would like to report harassment, discrimination, retaliation, misconduct, or sexual misconduct can fill out a complaint online at UL Ethics Report.
If you have questions or need more information, please feel free to contact us at Human Resources.
ICMA is committed to supporting a productive and safe working environment for everyone at the meeting. ICMA reserves the right to remove an individual from the Annual Meeting without warning or refund, prohibit attendance at future ICMA meetings, and notify the individual’s employer.
