SSWR Anti-Harassment Policy Updated for 2022 Annual Conference

The SSWR annual and work group meetings are designed to create intellectually stimulating scientific environments that are welcoming, inclusive and free from any form of harassment that is based on race, ethnicity, or national origin, gender, gender identity or gender expression, sexual orientation, age, disability, religion, socioeconomic, marital or parental status. This Anti-Harassment Policy delineates the expectations that we hold for anyone who attends or participates in the annual meeting or any other SSWR meeting, whether in-person or virtually, including attendees, SSWR members, SSWR and venue staff, vendors, contractors, and exhibitors; serves as a member of the board; or serves on a SSWR work group or taskforce. https://secure.sswr.org/about-sswr/sswr-anti%e2%80%91harassment-policy/

Membership Demographic Questions on Gender Identity and Sexual Orientation and Race and Ethnicity:

In 2019, the Membership Committee, chaired by Lin Fang, employed a systematic process to modify the sexual orientation/sexual identity and gender identity questions on the membership and registration forms. The goal of these modifications is to ensure that the membership and registration forms capture the most accurate and inclusive information about our SSWR constituents. This information will be used to tailor programs and practices that more effectively address diversity and inclusion within our organization. During 2021, the Membership Committee, chaired by Jodi Berger Cardoso, continued its work and provided opportunities for members to give feedback including a membership survey and virtual town halls on how to modify and update the current questions about race, ethnicity and disability on the membership and registration forms. Though modifications have not been updated for 2022 the Board of Directors acknowledges the importance of this work and will further study how best to be an inclusive and welcoming organization. The Board will continue to utilize a transparent process that is responsive to the membership. We appreciate your support as we continue on this journey and welcome the involvement and feedback of membership.
