AUI is committed to promoting the principles of diversity and broad participation within the workforces of AUI and its Research Centers. Every individual has the right to work in an environment where everyone is treated with respect and dignity, where equal employment opportunities are promoted and where illegal discriminatory practices, including harassment, are prohibited. All relationships among AUI employees, employment candidates, subcontractors, vendors, customers, guests and members of the general public must be business-like and free of bias, prejudice and harassment. Employees are expected to report incidents that are inconsistent with this policy. Allegations of discrimination and harassment will be promptly investigated and, when substantiated by the facts, remedial action will be taken.
