Zero tolerance by IAPG towards Harassment and Discrimination

… A respectful and fruitful working environment is fundamental for maintaining a high level of professionalism and for assuring an ethical conduct while practicing geosciences. Therefore, any kind of harassment and discrimination cannot be tolerated and must be denounced. Harassment and discrimination offend the dignity of the person, threaten the serenity of the working environment, limit the individual’s freedom of choice, and seriously undermine integrity, quality and credibility of the geoscience community. These kinds of behaviour prevent individuals from taking ethical decisions …” 

(from the keynote on geoethics by Silvia Peppoloni at the 35th IGC, Cape Town).
