The NTNP collaboration requires all members to act in a professional manner that is welcoming to all colleagues and free from discrimination, harassment, or retaliation. Members should respect one another and work to create a positive, inclusive, and diverse environment that supports scientific progress. We will use open and deliberate processes in communicating research opportunities with all members.
Any inappropriate actions or statements based on individual characteristics such as age, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, marital status, nationality, political affiliation, ability status, educational background, or any other characteristic protected by law will not be tolerated. This includes, but is not limited to, inappropriate or intimidating behavior and language, unwanted jokes or comments, unwanted touching or attention, offensive images, photography without permission, and stalking. Harassment related to political, religious, etc. issues is also prohibited. If a participant observes inappropriate comments or actions and personal intervention seems appropriate and safe, they should be considerate of all parties before intervening.
Any violations of this code of conduct should be reported to the spokespersons, diversity coordinator and/or members of the NTNP Executive Committee. Responses to violations may include verbal warning, notification of the pertinent HR departments and/or appropriate authorities, and expulsion from the NTNP Collaboration. Retaliation for complaints of inappropriate conduct will not be tolerated.

This policy is not intended to replace or supersede institutional codes of conduct or sexual harassment policies, and borrows wording from the American Physical Society code of conduct for meetings.
