Updated Code of Conduct

February 16, 2022

The International Neuroethics Society (INS) has updated its Code of Conduct. The code is intended to ensure event participants fully understand expectations regarding professional behavior for all meetings and activities organized by the Society.

The code prohibits all forms of harassment, discrimination, and professionally inappropriate behavior. Event participants are expected to treat others with respect and consideration at all times, and the Society reserves the right to take any appropriate action regarding unacceptable behavior or activity.

The code’s Guidance section provides examples of inappropriate behavior. This is not meant to be an exhaustive list. These are offered to illustrate what constitutes a professional environment committed to principles of justice, equity, diversity, and inclusion.

The INS Board of Directors approved the code in January 2023. Moving forward, everyone registering to participate in an in-person or virtual event organized by the Society will be required to confirm they have read and understand the Code of Conduct.

The INS is committed to providing safe and productive spaces that foster the free exchange of scholarly ideas. If you have any questions about the Code of Conduct, contact INS Assistant Director Robert Beets <[email protected]>.
