Diversity and Respectful Behaviour Policy
18th International Conference on X-Ray Absorption Fine Structure (XAFS2021) committee is inviting you to join the XAFS21 in a spirit of professionalism, diversity, friendliness, open-mindedness and respect. The XAFS21 organising committee commits to making the conference and all the activities productive and enjoyable for everyone. Diversity means creating an environment in which all participants are valued equitably for their skills and abilities and respected equally for their unique perspectives and experiences. We encourage you to keep an open mind and will not tolerate harassment of any kind directed toward participants and speakers.
At the XAFS21 conference, please act with respectful behavior in accordance with the following guidelines:
- Avoid sexist, racist or any other inappropriate comments or actions. Act professionally. Any anti-social behavior or discriminatory action is unacceptable.
- Be respectful. Provide constructive criticism.
- Illegal drug and alcohol abuse will not be tolerated at the conference. While some conference events do serve alcohol, participants should be mindful of their own limits and respect those that do not participate in alcohol consumption.
If you or someone else experiences harassment, regardless of how you otherwise choose to initially handle the situation, you are encouraged to report the situation to the XAFS21 organising committee.
