Division Releases Statement on Harassment, Sexual Harassment

The Division of Analytical Chemistry supports its members engaging in thoughtful and spirited discussions about important scientific and societal matters. These exchanges often yield beneficial results when conducted within collegial environments that respect everyone concerned, regardless of their level of formal education and whether they are from industry, government or academia, or other scientific and engineering disciplines. As chemical professionals, we strive to treat colleagues with respect, encourage them, learn with them, share ideas honestly, and give credit for their contributions.

To affirm our committement, and in accordance with National ACS policy, we release the attached statement on harassment and sexual harassment. 

Additional work by the Division in this area is on the horizon in 2019.  Stay tuned.
