Women Holding Hands


Reinforcing our Team Spirit

Our Alliance is dedicated to creating an inclusive environment for everyone, regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, colour, national origin, age, disability (physical or mental), sexual orientation, gender identity, parental status, marital status, and political affiliation as well as gender expression, mental illness, socioeconomic status or background, neuro(a)typicality, or physical appearance.

We’re united by IACFT’s values, and we celebrate our unique differences. We put forth this code of conduct not because we anticipate bad behaviour, but because we believe in the already exceptional level of respect among the Alliance’s members.

We believe that articulating our values and accountabilities to one another reinforces that respect and provides us with clear avenues to correct our culture should it ever stray.

We commit to enforce and evolve this code as our Alliance grows.

Every Member of the Alliance is encouraged to participate in professional scientific discourse, but may not intimidate, shout down, or heckle presenters.

Every Member of the Alliance shall treat everyone with professionalism, dignity, and respect.

No Member of the Alliance may use their position or personal belief/opinion to bully, abuse, victimise, harass or unlawfully discriminate against others. Harassment is defined as unwanted verbal or non-verbal conduct related to a relevant protected characteristic, which has the purpose or effect of violating an individual’s dignity or creating an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment for that individual.

Every member of the Alliance is expected to be considerate of other members, and contribute to a collaborative, positive, and healthy environment in which we can all succeed.

Specifically, all Members of the Alliance should always aim to:

  • Be supportive of your colleagues, both proactively and responsively.

  • Be inclusive.

  • Be collaborative.

  • Be generous in both giving and accepting feedback.

  • Be respectful toward all time zones.

  • Be kind.
