Our Commitment

The Broad Institute is committed to the highest possible legal and ethical standards of conduct in business and in research and will not tolerate illegal or dishonest behavior. The Broad encourages employees, officers, associated personnel and directors to identify any instances in which these standards may be compromised.

The Broad has selected EthicsPoint to provide a hotline to anonymously and confidentially report activities that may involve improper conduct or violations of Institute policies. This service is designed for complaints such as those related to financial, accounting issues, environmental health and safety matters, conflicts of interest, data privacy, research issues, including the care and use of animals and use of human subjects in research. The hotline service supplements, but does not replace or supersede, existing reporting methods. People are encouraged to bring concerns to their supervisor or manager, a person of authority within the Institute’s organizational structure, or to an appropriate Broad office.

You may file a report on this web site, or you may do so by telephone through the EthicsPoint Call Center by dialing toll-free 866-328-1748.

Upon submission of a report, EthicsPoint will promptly forward the report to the appropriate Broad administrator for review and investigation. All reports will be investigated promptly and discreetly, receiving careful consideration with the objective of addressing any improper conduct or violation of Institute policy. Please retain your report key and password and return to this web site within 10 days of filing a report to check for comments or follow-up questions.
