Our Commitment

As a professional society, The Society for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (SIAM) is committed to providing an inclusive climate that encourages the open expression and exchange of ideas, that is free from all forms of discrimination, harassment, and retaliation, and that is welcoming and comfortable to all members and to those who participate in its activities. In pursuit of that commitment, SIAM is dedicated to the philosophy of equality of opportunity and treatment for all participants regardless of gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, race, color, national or ethnic origin, religion or religious belief, age, marital status, disabilities, veteran status, field of expertise, or any other reason not related to scientific merit. This philosophy extends from SIAM conferences, to its publications, and to its governing structures and bodies. We expect all members of SIAM and participants in SIAM activities to work toward this commitment.

If you have experienced or observed behavior that is not consistent with the principles expressed above, you are encouraged to use the SIAM hotline, hosted by the third-party hotline provider, EthicsPoint. You are strongly encouraged to submit reports relating to violations of our Statement of Inclusiveness to the SIAM Hotline. The SIAM hotline can also be used to answer questions about related SIAM policies and procedures or be used to provide positive suggestions and stories about SIAM activities.

The information you provide will be sent to us by EthicsPoint on a totally confidential and anonymous basis if you should choose. You have our guarantee that your comments will be heard.

See the EthicsPoint FAQs for more information.
