Anti-harassment Statement

OTS Statement on the need for a safe and harassment-free environment for research, learning, and collaboration

OTS stands for a broad, inclusive, diverse, and safe culture of science. OTS believes in the need for a safe and harassment-free environment in which researchers, students, visitors, and staff may learn and collaborate. OTS adheres to the highest standards and all relevant and applicable national, state, and local laws and regulations.

OTS does not tolerate any sexual harassment, coercion, or assault at any of our facilities or in any of our programs. OTS regularly reviews our diversity and harassment policies to fully promote and ensure the respect and safety of all. To that end, we proactively ensure awareness by all employees, students, and visitors of these policies and require that they be affirmed by all participants in OTS-sponsored activities, as well as any other individuals having a business relationship with OTS.

The complete anti-harassment policy for visitors, including the procedure for reporting violations, is available here.  (Students should refer to the student policy.)
