Ethics Policies

Anti-Discrimination Policy

SGC International does not and will not tolerate unlawful discrimination. Membership in SGCI and participation in its events will be extended to all persons without regard to race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, veteran status, marital status, or sexual orientation.

Anti-Harassment Policy

SGCI reaffirms and emphasizes its commitment to provide a professional environment that is fair and responsible; that supports, nurtures, and rewards educational and professional growth on the basis of relevant factors such as ability and performance; and that is free of discriminatory, inappropriate, and disrespectful conduct or communication. Sexual harassment threatens this; inhibits the individual’s ability to function effectively; and violates acceptable standards of interrelationships. For these reasons, SGCI will not tolerate sexual harassment and will make every effort to eliminate it if it appears.
