ARLIS/NA Code of Conduct
ARLIS/NA is dedicated to providing collaborative experiences that are free from all forms of harassment, and inclusive of all people. As a professional community we expect conscious actions from our membership to foster a safe, supportive, and positive work environment, including but not limited to acts as simple as respecting the diverse viewpoints and conversations happening within ARLIS/NA, accepting peers for all aspects of who they are personally, and both accepting and receiving constructive critique graciously. ARLIS/NA does not tolerate harassment, and it is important for our membership to understand what constitutes these behaviors. Broadly defined, harassment can include unwelcome or offensive verbal comments or nonverbal expressions publicly or privately, in person, virtually, and/or in written communication. Sexual, discriminatory, or potentially triggering language and imagery is generally inappropriate for any ARLIS/NA event venue, including talks. However, this policy is not intended to constrain responsible scholarly or professional discourse and debate. We welcome engagement with difficult topics, done with respect and care. The ARLIS/NA Code of Conduct Team, comprised of members from the Executive Board and Diversity Committee, is a resource for all members; do not hesitate to contact them for assistance.
