NASIG Releases “Statement of Inclusion”
From a Statement Posted on the NASIG Blog:
While our focus as a membership organization is “to advance and transform the management of information resources,” we cannot forget that this work is done by individual people who are experiencing a multitude of emotions right now, and therefore we must also do what we can to ensure that NASIG remains a space where a diversity of perspectives is welcomed, but divisive and abusive behaviors are not.
…we have evolved and expanded our Code of Conduct to clarify the expectations we have for the behavior of NASIG members not only at our annual conference, but in other NASIG venues, both physical and virtual. NASIG does not tolerate discrimination or harassment in any form.
