ResilienceCon Statement on Inclusiveness and Respect
Life Paths Research Center and its partners seek to create an atmosphere at ResilienceCon in which participants may learn, network, and converse with colleagues in an environment of mutual respect. ResilienceCon seeks to contribute to the building of new academic cultures and, more widely, new inclusive institutional cultures that genuinely respect and appreciate difference and diversity – whether differences are of class, gender, sexual orientation, race, nationality, age, ability status, language, or religious belief, or are epistemological or methodological in nature.
Everyone who attends the annual meeting is entitled to an experience that is free from harassment, bullying, and intimidation, including any form of unwelcome sexual advances or contact, and any discrimination based on class, gender, sexual orientation, race, nationality, age, ability status, language, or religious belief. By attending the meeting, all participants accept the obligation to uphold the rights of attendees and treat everyone with respect.
ResilienceCon does not seek to limit the areas of inquiry of its members or to curtail robust scholarly debate. Its aim is to promote critical and open inquiry that is free of personal harassment, prejudice and aggression.
Please note that ResilienceCon standards supplement but do not replace the ethical and professional guidelines or other organizations to which participants may belong.
In the event that a ResilienceCon attendee experiences or witnesses harassment, bullying, or intimidation, the attendee may contact a ResilienceCon co-chair, program committee member, or staff person to make a confidential report. The ResilienceCon co-chairs will contact the person who reported the behavior, and, if warranted and with the permission of the person making the report, contact the person about whom the complaint has been made. ResilienceCon may take further action, such as removal of an individual from the meeting, if complaints are made onsite and such a response is deemed necessary.
Note: Adapted from a review of other materials, including the harassment policy of the Society for Classical Studies and the writings of Hall and Tandon (2017).
ResilienceCon Grievance Policy
