IDSA & HIVMA Adopt New Policy on Discrimination, Harassment & Bullying

IDSA and HIVMA are committed to the principles of inclusion, diversity, access and equity. As part of its work under the IDA&E Task Force, the IDSA and HIVMA Board of Directors recently adopted a policy on discrimination, harassment and bullying.

In addition to their commitment to IDA&E principles, both Societies are also committed to integrity and civility, and providing a professional environment that is free from harassment and discrimination in which all individuals, including employees, members, and volunteers, are treated with respect and dignity. The new policy states that “each individual has the right to work in a professional atmosphere free from unlawful harassment, discrimination, and retaliation.”

This policy applies to conduct by members and volunteers of IDSA and HIVMA, including officers, directors, committee members and contractors and applies to complaints of harassment and discrimination that involve members and volunteers of IDSA and HIVMA at all IDSA and HIVMA events including, without limitation, Board of Director meetings, committee meetings, conferences and networking events.
