TEXAS SOCIETY OF MAMMALOGISTS
TSM Inclusivity Statement
The Texas Society of Mammalogists (TSM) prohibits discrimination, harassment, and bullying against any member because of ancestry, color, national origin, marital status, veteran status, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, religion, age, disability, political affiliation, or any other characteristic protected by law. The TSM expects its members, volunteers, and other constituents, when and wherever they are conducting TSM business or participating in TSM events or activities, to maintain an environment free of discrimination, harassment, bullying, or retaliation.
Discrimination is defined as treating individuals differently – either preferentially or with adverse impact – because they have similar characteristics or because they are from specific groups, unless differential treatment is reasonable, essential, and directly related to conducting TSM business or when serving as an official representative of the TSM.
