Our Commitment

The Genetics Society of America (GSA) Conference Code of Conduct was established to communicate a transparent set of standards and guidelines for acceptable behavior at GSA Conferences and to provide a positive, safe, and welcoming environment for all attendees, vendors, volunteers, and staff. Please see the Code of Conduct for more details on taking action or making a report in the event of a Code of Conduct violation.

If you would like to place an anonymous report in confidence, we encourage you to use this hotline hosted by a third-party provider, EthicsPoint. You can submit reports relating to Code of Conduct violations, ask for guidance related to policies and procedure, and provide positive suggestions and stories.

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 on the hotline.
