Statement on Sexual Harassment, and Other Forms of Harassment, and Sexual Assault
Investing in science, technology, engineering, and education for the Nation’s future necessitates a safe environment, free of any form of harassment, that fosters equal opportunity for all.
It is NSF policy to foster harassment-free environments wherever science is conducted, including at NSF-sponsored conferences and workshops.
Sexual or other forms of harassment in any NSF funded conference, workshop or research setting are not acceptable.
2023 Research Infrastructure Workshop attendees, whether in-person or virtual, should inform NSF if you become aware of unlawful discrimination or harassment at this workshop or in any NSF-funded program at (703) 292-7020 or at email@example.com. If you wish to file a formal complaint, please use the online NSF Awardee Program Complaint Form.
