ASV Policy on Harassment and Discrimination
The ASV Council takes pride in having the annual meeting be a forum for open scientific discussion from all conference attendees. We are also committed to maintaining an environment that is free from all forms of discrimination and harassment. In support of that, the Council approved a policy on harassment and discrimination in 2018 that clearly states the ASV commitment and informs ASV members of how the policy will be implemented. See the ASV website (“Governance”) for more details.
