The diversity of people, ideas, cultures, and educational backgrounds enables the FRIB Theory Alliance’s scientific research program and is an essential aspect of its mission. Members of the Theory Alliance, while participating in professional activities, are expected to behave in an ethical, professional, and respectful manner. We are committed to working with our partners to promote diverse and inclusive spaces for those affiliated with the alliance.
FRIB-TA does not tolerate harassment of any kind, including sexual harassment, bullying, intimidation, violence, threats of violence, retaliation, or other disruptive behavior. Discrimination in any guise (verbal, written or physical) based on an individual's race, color, sex, religion, disability, etc. is not acceptable. When such behavior is brought to the attention of the FRIB-TA, it will be investigated by the FRIB DEI investigator. If claims are verified, the harasser will face consequences up to and including removal from the FRIB-TA membership, at which point the harasser will not be granted permission to attend FRIB-TA events. To file a complaint please contact FRIB DEI investigator Melanie Trowbridge (firstname.lastname@example.org) and/or the Chair of the FRIB-TA DEI committee Amy Lovell (email@example.com).
