As a nonprofit organization that generates financial resources from the contributing public, the American Diabetes Association (the Association) has a responsibility to ensure the proper stewardship of these resources.
It is the policy of the Association to fully comply with the intent and spirit of all applicable laws and regulations. The Association expects its volunteers and employees to conduct themselves in a professional and honest manner that reflects the Association Core Values of Integrity, Leadership, Ownership, Inclusion, Trust and Passion for Making a Difference. Employees and volunteers are expected to use good judgment, to apply the highest ethical standards and to refrain from any form of illegal, dishonest, or unethical behavior. It is the responsibility of each employee to be familiar and comply with the Association’s Employee Standards of Conduct.
The Association will take seriously and investigate any possible fraudulent or dishonest use or misuse of the Association’s resources as reported to the Association, see the Association’s Fraudulent or Dishonest Conduct & Whistleblower Protection Policy. To assist the Association’s volunteers and employees, the Association has selected EthicsPoint to anonymously and confidentially report suspected activities that may involve criminal conduct or violations of the Association’s Standards of Conduct.
Normally, an employee should report his or her concerns of suspected illegal, unethical, or otherwise fraudulent conduct to his/her supervisor. If the employee is uncomfortable for any reason reporting his/her concern to his/her supervisor, he/she may submit information anonymously and confidentially by clicking on the appropriate division from the list to the left or by calling 1-866-ETHICSP (866-384-4277).
