McEntaffer Group Code of Ethics

The McEntaffer Group Code of Ethics is designed to help us put the group’s values into practice. The basis of the code is the recognition that our activities in the group will be, and should be, measured against the highest possible standards of inclusion, diversity, integrity, and equality. We set the bar for our group’s conduct high, not only for practical, but also for aspirational reasons. To be at the forefront of scientific endeavour, diversity of thought is as important as scientific rigor. To achieve these goals as a group we all must follow the same code.
Please read the group’s code of ethics so that you can understand the group’s core values. We ask that you follow this code in both spirit and letter, and remember that each of us has a personal responsibility to follow, and to encourage others to follow this code and associated values in our work.

The Code:

We strive to make people from various backgrounds feel welcome in our group. We value diversity in race, ethnicity, gender, age, sexual orientation, religious beliefs, political beliefs, socioeconomic standing, and ability.
We do not tolerate disrespectful or hateful conduct.
We provide a supportive group experience; be respectful, professional, and kind.
We do not condone harassment or discrimination and will report all cases to the appropriate authorities.
We value safety in the workplace. Be sure to take appropriate training before working in the lab. If you feel a procedural change or additional PPE would make your work safer, we are committed to evaluating your suggestions and making appropriate changes.
We strive to operate with integrity; be kind, be true, and include others.
