At the most fundamental level, the NIH Clinical Center’s mission is about the respect for human life. All of us – patients, staff, and visitors – have a right to be in a safe environment, free of hostility or harassment.
The NIH and Clinical Center encourages employees, contractors, trainees and visitors to create a workplace free of harassment and discrimination and to come forward if you believe you’ve been harassed in the workplace. We are partners in medical discovery, and we want to ensure the safety of everyone at the Clinical Center in order to continue providing hope through pioneering clinical research to improve human health.
We encourage you to use the NIH resources available:
- NIH Anti-Harassment Policy
- NIH Personal Relationships in the Workplace Policy
- NIH Working Group of the Advisory Council to the Director (ACD) on Changing the Culture to End Sexual Harassment
- NIH Civil Program
- NIH Anti-Harassment Hotline: 833-224-3829
The Clinical Center values our diverse workforce with a culture of teamwork and collaboration. Learn more about Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Accessibility at the Clinical Center.
