BCMH Code of Conduct
We take pride in being a supportive organisation, promoting good scholarship in the wide field of maritime history through our various activities. We believe in and encourage an open, diverse, and supportive community of scholars, and we expect all of our trustees and fellows and any participants in our activities (whether in person or online) to act with integrity and consideration towards others.
There is no place in this community for intimidating or abusive behaviour of any kind, including (but not limited to) sexual harassment and disrespect on the basis of gender, race, religion, ethnicity, age, or any other characteristic. We will not tolerate such behaviour by any member of the Commission or by any person involved in its activities.
If you have experienced such behaviour during activities organised by the Commission, or committed by a member of it, please report this to the event organiser or to the Chair of the Commission [or other officers]. All such reports will be treated in confidence.
