Anti-Harassment Policy

The Garden is committed to maintaining an environment that is free from harassment. Harassment, whether verbal, physical, or visual, that is based upon a person鈥檚 protected characteristic or status, such as race, color, age, marital status, sex, pregnancy, national origin, ancestry, religion, disability, genetic information, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, parental status, marital status, citizenship status, military or veteran status, or any other characteristic or status protected by applicable federal, state, or local law, is a form of discrimination and prohibited by the Garden. The Garden will not tolerate harassment of individuals by anyone, including any supervisor, co-worker, vendor, visitor, volunteer, board member, donor, student, or any other third party. This policy applies to employees, participants in the Garden鈥檚 educational programs and activities, visitors, and third-party vendors and contractors conducting business or other activities with or at the Garden.

Examples of harassment may include, for example, jokes or teasing directed at a person based on his/her protected characteristic or status, displaying or circulating written materials or pictures that degrade a person or group, or verbal abuse or insults about, directed at, or made in the presence of an individual or group of individuals in a protected group.

Sexual harassment is a specific type of harassment prohibited by law and by this policy and may include, but is not limited to, the following conduct:听

  • Unwelcome verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature when submission to the conduct is an explicit or implicit term or condition of employment or participation in any of the Garden鈥檚 educational programs and/or activities;
  • Unwelcome verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature when submission to or rejection of the conduct is used, implicitly or explicitly, as a basis for making decisions affecting the individual; and
  • Unwelcome verbal or physical conduct of a sexual nature when the conduct creates a hostile environment. A hostile environment exists when the conduct is sufficiently severe, persistent, or pervasive that it unreasonably interferes with, limits, or deprives an individual from participating in or benefitting from the Garden鈥檚 employment or education programs and/or activities.

Sexual harassment includes conduct directed towards a person of the opposite or same sex, and may include explicit sexual propositions, sexual innuendo, suggestive comments, sexually oriented jokes or teasing, obscene printed or visual material, and physical contact such as patting, pinching, or brushing against another person鈥檚 body.

Sexual violence is another form of sexual harassment and is also prohibited by this policy. 鈥淪exual violence鈥 means physical sexual acts attempted or perpetrated against a person鈥檚 will or when a person is incapable of giving consent, including without limitation rape, sexual assault, sexual battery, sexual abuse, and sexual coercion.

If you witness or become aware of any harassment (including sexual harassment), you must promptly report it by following the Anti-Harassment and Discrimination Complaint Procedure set forth below.

If you experience such conduct, the Garden strongly encourages you to report the conduct following the same procedure so that the Garden can take steps to investigate the concerns and take any corrective action that might be appropriate.
