ASQ Anti-Harassment and
It is the policy of ASQ that all Society members and participants in Society activities experience an environment free from all forms of harassment, discrimination, and retaliation. As a professional organization, ASQ is committed to providing an atmosphere that is inclusive and safe and encourages the exchange of ideas regardless of sex, race, color, age, national or ethnic origin, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, or any other legally protected status. Harassment, discrimination, and retaliation are forms of misconduct that undermine the integrity of the Society and violate ASQ’s Code of Ethics.
Reporting violations of this policy: Any person covered by this policy who believes he or she has been subjected to harassment, discrimination, or retaliation should report the incident immediately using ASQ’s Red Flag Reporting system (Client Code: ASQMEM) at 877-647-3335 or www.redflagreporting.com. ASQ management can also assist any person in making a direct report to the legal or human resources departments.
All complaints will be treated seriously and investigated promptly. All reports will be kept confidential to the extent possible, consistent with the law and the need to conduct an adequate investigation.
The ASQ representatives jointly responsible for the administration of this policy are the Chief Human Resources Officer and the General Counsel.
