(Adopted by the American College of Toxicology July 23, 2020)
The American College of Toxicology (ACT) is committed to providing a safe, productive, and welcoming environment for all ACT sponsored events. All participants, including, but not limited to attendees, speakers, volunteers, exhibitors, ACT staff members, and service providers are expected to abide by this Code of Conduct. This policy applies to all ACT hosted or co-hosted events, including conferences, educational courses, symposia, in-person meetings, webinars, teleconferences, and other electronically derived communication platforms.
ACT has zero-tolerance for any form of discrimination or harassment. If you experience harassment or become aware of any incidents of unacceptable behavior, ACT asks that you inform ACT Headquarters at firstname.lastname@example.org; 703.547.0875 so that ACT can take the appropriate action.
Attendees must always adhere to the principles outlined in this Code of Conduct, namely:
ACT reserves the right to take any action deemed necessary and appropriate, including immediate removal from the meeting or event without warning or refund, in response to any incident of unacceptable behavior, and ACT reserves the right to prohibit attendance at any future meeting or event, virtually or in person. Consequences of misconduct may result in further action, per ACT Code of Ethics and pursuant to the process detailed in ACT Bylaws.
