The Members of the Association bind themselves to abide by the established provisions of the Constitution, which include non-discrimination on the basis of race, religion, ethnic origin, gender or sexual orientation with regard to activities of professional associations’ training programs and public events.
Along with challenges and losses that the coronavirus pandemic has brought upon our world, the spirit of our time has also brought a wave of change of perception, revealing some of the ills of the global political and socio-economic order. The long history of deeply ingrained racial, economic, gender and other inequalities are being challenged in different parts of the world, demanding a new landscape where some ills may begin to heal.
A policy of non-discrimination is defined in the IAAP Constitution.
Our members are required to follow a policy of non-discrimination on the basis of race, religion, ethnic origin, gender, and sexual orientation. This includes activities of IAAP professional groups, such as membership in a professional society, training programs, and events for the public at large, sponsored by the various Societies.
The Non-Discrimination Policy is a regular part of the IAAP website and can be found in “About the IAAP dropdown”. Because of its actuality we have now additionally placed this text here in the front of the website.
