Diversity and Anti-Harassment Statement

SASE is committed to providing a safe and welcoming environment for all members and event participants, irrespective of race, color, ethnicity, ancestry, national origin, language, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, marital status, religion, disability, veteran status, or socio-economic status. Our association exists for the purposes of scholarly, educational, and professional exchange; much of the richness and vitality of this exchange is owed to SASE’s diverse membership and spirit of inclusiveness. Discrimination and harassment of colleagues, students, or other participants in SASE events undermines shared principles of equity, free inquiry, and free expression – and is considered by SASE to be a serious form of professional misconduct. SASE provides inclusionary events such as the “SASE Women and Gender Forum”, conference fees are based on socio-economic status, the SASE community is dedicated to a Code of Conduct, and diversity is considered in committees and convenor teams.
