Zero-Tolerance Policy for Harassment & Discrimination
Diversity and inclusion, which are the real grounds for creativity, must remain at the center of what we do.
Her Runway is committed to providing an online environment free of discrimination and harassment in all of its activities and operations. This policy prohibits illegal conduct and aims to prevent all forms of disrespectful behaviors and decisions that could contribute to a discriminatory or hostile environment for Her Runway’s readers, followers, and supporters.
The policy covers harassment and discrimination based on gender, race, color, religion, national origin, mental or physical disabilities, age, sexual orientation, pregnancy, medical condition, and family or marital status.
Her Runway recognizes the obligation to assure our network that the policies of zero tolerance for discrimination and harassment will be respected and enforced when individuals engage with Her Runway. Because this policy is a zero-tolerance policy, harassment and discrimination are broadly defined concerning the protected characteristics described above.
Discrimination is defined as any unjustified or unlawful decision adversely affecting a member or participant. Harassment under this policy includes verbal, physical, or visual conduct that creates or contributes to a hostile professional or social environment or interferes with a participant’s ability to take part in Her Runway‘s activities. In a nutshell, this policy aims to encourage and foster respect and fairness for all readers, followers, and members.
Any incident of discrimination or harassment should be reported promptly to Her Runway through the Contact form. A person with a grievance under this policy is not required to complain first to any particular person but may report the grievance to any such responsible individual. All members or participants who receive reports, complaints, or other information regarding discrimination or harassment, should transmit such information immediately to a responsible person within the organization.
Her Runway will thoroughly investigate every reported complaint of harassment or discrimination to the extent appropriate and with due discretion and objectivity. Her Runway will not tolerate retaliation against any member or participant for making a complaint or cooperating in the investigation of a complaint under this policy.
If harassment or discrimination is established, appropriate action will be taken by Her Runway, which may include, but may not be limited to, warnings, reprimands, suspension of membership benefits or status, or the exclusion or termination of membership, services, or access to Her Runway platforms.
