The Standing Committee for Gender Equality in Science (SCGES) is continuing its series of webinars on Wednesday June 28 at 16:00 UTC with a session is entitled “Developing and enacting Codes of Conduct in Professional Unions”.
More and more academic, research, and industrial institutions are enacting codes of conduct. These codes clarify an organization’s mission, values, and principles and can serve as both internal guidelines and external statements of values and commitments. Several international unions have recently developed such codes of conduct, and many more are interested in doing so. This webinar will discuss the motivations, challenges, and successes for codes of conduct within professional unions. Speakers representing four unions who have recently enacted such codes will present their organizations’ experiences followed by open discussion at the end of the session.

- Gillian Butcher, International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP)
- Moderator: Carol Woolward, International Council for Industrial and Applied Mathematics (ICIAM)
