Code of Conduct

Education Beyond Borders (EBB) – Code of Conduct

It is each EBB Member’s responsibility to understand the values and approach of our organization in detail and to comply with home, host-country and online protocols of behaviour that respect, nurture, and advance such values and approaches.

Education Beyond Borders prohibits discrimination based upon the basis of race, colour, sex, religion, place of origin, ancestry, age, disability, sexual orientation, marital/family status or any other legally protected characteristic. Education Beyond Borders is firmly committed to a policy of equal opportunity in all aspects of employee relations, including employment, salary administration, employee development, promotion and transfer.

EBB prohibits conduct that singles out an employee, member, volunteer or group in a negative way because of their sex, race, colour, national origin, ancestry, citizenship, religion, age, physical or mental disability, medical condition, sexual orientation, gender identity, veteran status or marital status. Harassment can take many forms, including offensive remarks, unwelcome advances, requests for sexual favours, jokes, and ethnic, racist, or sexual slurs. Any form of harassment is a violation of EBB philosophy and policies.

Our non-profit organization (as well as its membership individually or in groups) is not permitted to assume lobbying functions for political or religious positions at home or abroad. We can, however, promote the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, as determined by a United Nations charter, and articulate its components within the context of our international work. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights focuses its attention on values they determine as inalienable, such as freedom, a respect for diversity, and the ability to participate in a democratic society. Membership in Education Beyond Borders and access to our operations, projects, programs, services, tools, members, and groups is a privilege and opportunity.

All membership and privileges are revocable should EBB members and/or organizations using our name and operations or that we may partner with (a) do so without our consent (b) conduct activities that violate our own discrimination policy, international law, or common decency (at EBB’s discretion) (c) engage in actions inconsistent with the values articulated in this document. For example, Education Beyond Borders stands firmly against corporal punishment. Should teachers participate in such activities, they may no longer remain members in good standing.

I agree to comply with all applicable governmental directives, laws, rules, and regulations associated with Education Beyond Borders program and will continue to do so while participating in any and all Education Beyond Borders programs. I will not use EBB resources, reputation, or goodwill for personal or organizational gain or to further any cause, be it political, religious, or otherwise that is outside the stated mission of EBB without express permission.

The participant agrees and promises to indemnify and hold harmless Education Beyond Borders (EBB) for and against any and all claims, losses, damages, and costs of any nature whatsoever arising out of use by the undersigned of EBB website, tools, open educational resources and third party resources and any and all events, conferences, teacher training activities. This indemnity and hold harmless applies to all claims, losses, damages or costs resulting from acts or omissions of the undersigned, as well as from acts or omissions of EBB, including, specifically, any act of negligence on the part of EBB. This indemnity and hold harmless shall also cover all reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs incurred by EBB to prosecute or defend any claim covered by this agreement.

I have read and understand this Code of Conduct and agree to abide by all its requirements.
