We are a diverse and inclusive culture; we want every community member to feel welcome and safe. Our responsibility for people is the first pillar in Aalto University’s Code of Conduct
Equality

Aalto University is a diverse and inclusive culture; we want every community member to feel welcome and safe.

We aim to provide a non-discriminatory, equal and accessible environment in which employees and students with diverse backgrounds and duties receive equal treatment and are free to study and work for fulfilling professional, educational and other aspirations, without discrimination.

We treat each other equally and impartially

Every member of the Aalto community has the right to be treated with respect regardless of their gender, gender identity or expression thereof, age, ethnic or national origin, nationality, language, religion, beliefs, opinion, political or trade union engagement, family relations, health, disability, sexual orientation, or other personal characteristics.

We do not accept any kind of inappropriate conduct, bullying or harassment

We behave in a responsible manner and respect the rights of the other members of our community to enjoy a safe and pleasant university environment that allows unhindered progress in study and work. We do not accept any kind of inappropriate conduct, bullying or harassment.

We care for the safety and well-being of ourselves and others

Our employees’ and students’ wellbeing is core to us. Aalto is committed to providing healthy and safe working and learning conditions. Aalto community members are responsible for adhering to health and safety practices as well as recognising any potential dangers and taking necessary mitigating actions.

Tips

  1. Stay open to fresh perspectives, share experiences, listen others and experiment other ways to foster open discourse, encourage free exchange of ideas and build mutual trust.

  2. Reflect on your unconscious biases and stereotypes that are often attributed unfairly to different groups of people.

  3. Never use unwelcome verbal, visual, physical or other conduct of any kind that causes others to feel threatened, unsafe, uncomfortable or creates an intimidating, offensive or hostile work or study environment.

  4. Take actively care for the safety and well-being of yourself and others.

  5. Recognising and removing accessibility barriers is an on-going process requiring everyone’s input. If you notice accessibility barriers do not hesitate to suggest a change.
