Biophysical Society Code of Conduct, Anti-Harassment Policy
The Biophysical Society (BPS) is committed to providing an environment that encourages the free expression and exchange of scientific ideas. As a global, professional Society, the BPS is committed to the philosophy of equal opportunity and respectful treatment for all, regardless of national or ethnic origin, religion or religious belief, gender, gender identity or expression, race, color, age, marital status, sexual orientation, disabilities, veteran status, or any other reason not related to scientific merit. All BPS meetings and BPS-sponsored activities promote an environment that is free of inappropriate behavior and harassment by or toward all attendees and participants of Society events, including speakers, organizers, students, guests, media, exhibitors, staff, vendors, and other suppliers. BPS expects anyone associated with an official BPS-sponsored event to respect the rules and policies of the Society, the venue, the hotels, and the city. Definition of Harassment The term “harassment” includes but is not limited to epithets, unwelcome slurs, jokes, or verbal, graphic or physical conduct relating to an individual’s race, color, religious creed, sex, national origin, ancestry, citizenship status, age, gender or sexual orientation that denigrate or show hostility or aversion toward an individual or group. Sexual harassment refers to unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature. Behavior and language that are welcome/acceptable to one person may be unwelcome/ offensive to another. Consequently, individuals must use discretion to ensure that their words and actions communicate respect for others. This is especially important for those in positions of authority since individuals with lower rank or status may be reluctant to express their objections or discomfort regarding unwelcome behavior. It does not refer to occasional compliments of a socially acceptable nature. It refers to behavior that is not welcome, is personally offen- sive, debilitates morale, and therefore, interferes with work effectiveness. The following are examples of behavior that, when unwelcome, may constitute sexual harassment: sexual flirtations, advances, or propositions; verbal comments or physical actions of a sexual nature; sexually degrading words used to describe an individual; a display of sexually suggestive objects or pictures; sexually explicit jokes; unnecessary touching. Attendees or participants who are asked to stop engaging in harassing behavior are expected to comply immediately. Anyone who feels harassed is encouraged to immediately inform the alleged harasser that the behavior is unwelcome. In many instances, the person is unaware that their conduct is offensive and when so advised can easily and willingly correct the conduct so that it does not reoccur. Anyone who feels harassed is NOT REQUIRED to address the person believed guilty of inappropriate treatment. If the informal discussion with the alleged harasser is unsuccessful in remedying the problem or if the complainant does not feel comfortable with such an approach, they can report the behavior as detailed below. Reported or suspected occurrences of harassment will be promptly and thoroughly investigated. Following an investigation, BPS will immediately take any necessary and appropriate action. BPS will not permit or condone any acts of retaliation against anyone who files harassment complaints or cooperates in the investigation of same.
Reporting a Violation Violations of this Conduct Policy should be reported immediately. If you feel physically unsafe or believe a crime has been committed, you should report it to the police immediately. To report a violation to BPS: • You may do so in person at the Annual Meeting at the BPS Business Office in the convention center. • You may do so in person to BPS senior staff at Thematic Meetings, BPS Conferences, or other BPS events. • At any time (during or after an event), you can make a report through http://biophysics.ethicspoint.com or via a dedicated hotline (phone numbers listed on the website) which will collect and relay information in a secure and sensitive manner. Reported or suspected occurrences of harassment will be promptly and thoroughly investigated per the procedure detailed below. Following an investigation, BPS will immediately take any necessary and appropriate action. BPS will not permit or condone any acts of retaliation against anyone who files harassment complaints or cooperates in the investigation of same. Investigative Procedure All reports of harassment or sexual harassment will be treated seriously. However, absolute confidentiality cannot be promised nor can it be assured. BPS will conduct an investigation of any complaint of harassment or sexual harassment, which may require limited disclosure of pertinent information to certain parties, including the alleged harasser. Once a complaint of harassment or sexual harassment is received, BPS will begin a prompt and thorough investigation. Please note, if a complaint is filed anonymously, BPS may be severely limited in our ability to follow-up on the allegation. • An impartial investigative committee, consisting of the current President, President-Elect, and Executive Officer will be established. If any of these individuals were to be named in an allegation, they would be excluded from the committee. • The committee will interview the complainant and review the written complaint. If no written complaint exists, one will be requested. • The committee will speak to the alleged offender and present the complaint. • The alleged offender will be given the opportunity to address the complaint, with sufficient time to respond to the evidence and bring his/her own evidence. • If the facts are in dispute, the investigative team may need to interview anyone named as witnesses. • The investigative committee may seek BPS Counsel’s advice. • Once the investigation is complete, the committee will report their findings and make recommendations to the Society Officers. • If the severity of the allegation is high, is a possible repeat offense, or is determined to be beyond BPS’s capacity to assess claims and views on either side, BPS may refer the case to the alleged offender’s home institution (Office of Research Integrity of similar), employer, licensing board, or law enforcement for their investigation and decision. Disciplinary Actions Individuals engaging in behavior prohibited by this policy as well as those making allegations of harassment in bad faith will be subject to disciplinary action. Such actions range from a written warning to ejection from the meeting or activity in question without refund of registration fees, being banned from participating in future Society meetings or Society-sponsored activities, being expelled from membership in the Society, and reporting the behavior to their employer or calling the authorities. In the event that the individual is dissatisfied with the results of the investigation, they may appeal to the President of the Society. Any questions regarding this policy should be directed to the BPS Executive Officer or other Society Officer.
