The AIA is committed to working with its Members and Firms to change the culture of our profession to one that is diverse, welcoming and treats each individual with dignity and respect. On June 4, 2018, AIA sent local component Presidents and CACE information and a Model Harassment Policy to assist local components with adopting a Sexual Harassment Policy, which is a new Core Member Service requirement for local component accreditation. AIA Grand Rapids, a component of the American Institute of Architects (AIA), and its members are committed to full compliance with all laws and regulations, and to maintaining the highest ethical standards in the way we conduct our operations and activities.
The AIA Grand Rapids Board of Directors has now approved and adopted a Sexual Harassment Policy for our local AIA Grand Rapids Chapter. Members may review our newly adopted policy which was approved on March 5, 2019 here. This policy is designed to prevent sexual and other types of harassment within the AIA Grand Rapids Chapter, and to provide for corrective action as appropriate.
