JEDI-EOS strives to create an inclusive environment for everyone in EOS. As a part of this goal, we are sharing our culture of universal respect. EOS welcomes all, including faculty, staff, students, and guests, regardless of their appearance, age, background, ability, identity, race, national or ethnic origin, religious beliefs, socioeconomic or political status, gender identity and expression, or sexual orientation. We are committed to eliminating all forms of discrimination, harassment, bullying, retaliation, or inappropriate physical contact. We respect and celebrate each other’s differences and condemn actions that create toxic work environments that reduce the quality, integrity, and pace of the advancement of science by marginalizing individuals and communities.
As community members engaged in higher education and research, we celebrate the healthy exchange of ideas through reason and respectful argumentation. Creating a positive, supportive work environment that allows for this healthy exchange is the responsibility of every person in EOS. However, reality suggests that actions are still necessary to achieve this ideal. We share here our belief that the success and wellbeing of the EOS community depends on our commitment to a culture of universal respect.
This statement was inspired by and modified from the CEPS DEI Committee Expectation of Universal Respect.
