Non-Discrimination & Non-Harrassment

Sonoran Desert Institute is committed to maintaining a fair and respectful environment for work and learning. Such an atmosphere must be free of intimidation, fear, and retaliation. The Institute prohibits discrimination or harassment on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, age, gender, sexual orientation, disability, marital or military/veteran status or any other category protected by federal, state, or local law.

In keeping with this commitment, the Institute also maintains a strict policy that prohibits sexual harassment, which includes unwelcome sexual advances, requests for sexual favors, and other verbal or physical harassment of a sexual nature.

Incidents of discrimination and/or harassment will be met with appropriate disciplinary action, up to and including dismissal from the Institute. In addition, retaliation, in any form, against any person raising a discriminatory or harassment concern will not be tolerated by the Institute.
