Diversity and Inclusion
GSA is committed to promoting equality, diversity, and inclusion to create greater opportunity for any individual to fulfil their scientific
potential, irrespective of their background, gender, or circumstances. This diversity leads to innovation by attracting the widest possible
talent to the community and fostering a greater diversity of ideas, approaches, and perspectives. The Organizing Committee aims to select
speakers and session chairs that represent the breadth and diversity of the discipline and conference participants. GSA especially encourages
the Committee to select excellent speakers from groups traditionally underrepresented in science, for example: https://grants.nih.gov/grants/guide/notice-files/NOT-OD-18-129.html
Code of Conduct
GSA expects attendees and exhibitors to respect each other, GSA staff, and hotel staff, and to behave in a courteous fashion. Attendees should
adhere to common sense rules for public behavior, personal interaction, common courtesy, and respect for private property. Abusive, harassing,
or threatening behavior towards any other attendee, GSA staff, or hotel staff will not be tolerated. When at the meeting, immediately report
any incidents in which you feel a meeting attendee is abusive, insulting, intimidating, bothersome, or acting in an unsafe or illegal manner
at the meeting registration desk or to Suzy Brown at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please contact: email@example.com if you need to file a formal complaint. The Code of Conduct is under review and will be updated in 2019.
