Professional Conduct

It is critical to the success of our operation and programs that an atmosphere of respect, trust, and safety be established and maintained at all times. As part of its core values, Salzburg Global Seminar is committed to the elimination of discriminatory practices. Bearing in mind that cultural and behavioral norms may vary, Salzburg Global Seminar will not tolerate any form of harassment on the part of its employees and participants.

Salzburg Global expressly prohibits any form of inappropriate conduct or harassment of employees or participants based on race, color, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, national origin, age, marital status, veteran status, sexual orientation, genetic information, disability, matriculation, political affiliation, personal appearance, family responsibilities, or any other category protected by applicable law.

Harassment and similar inappropriate conduct prohibited, including verbal, physical or visual conduct that denigrates or shows hostility or aversion to an individual based on the employee or participant’s protected characteristic or status, when such conduct has the purpose or effect of unreasonably interfering with an employee’s work performance or participant’s program participation, creating an intimidating, hostile or offensive environment, or otherwise adversely affecting an individual’s wellbeing.

Salzburg Global Seminar will not tolerate such harassment and similarly inappropriate behaviors. Sexual harassment is a specific kind of inappropriate conduct prohibited by this policy. Sexual harassment includes, but is not limited to, unwanted, uninvited, and unwelcomed behavior directed at another because of their sex.

Any individual who believes that he or she is being subjected to any form of harassment should make it clear to the offending party that such behavior is offensive and contrary to Salzburg Global Seminar policy. A report of harassment should be immediately brought to the attention of the Program Director or Senior Management. Salzburg Global Seminar reserves the right to ask anyone it believes has engaged in harassment as defined in this policy to leave the program.
