IEEE RAS CARESCARES Operations
Committee to Aid Reporting on Misconduct Concerns
IEEE RAS CARES is a committee that acts as a trusted listener and empathetic support for the RAS community members around misconduct concerns, including, but not limited to sexual harassment, discrimination and bullying, at RAS conferences, workshops, meetings, and events. All IEEE RAS events abide by the IEEE Policy Against Discrimination and Harassment and the IEEE RAS Code of Conduct. If a violation of this policy occurs, IEEE RAS encourages reporting the incident as described in the RAS Code of Conduct.
We recognize that reporting to a conference chair, or to an IEEE administrator, can be intimidating, especially in the face of an already unpleasant experience. We have therefore established CARES: Committee to Aid Reporting on Misconduct concerns. The committee consists of experienced, diverse, and empathic senior members of the IEEE RAS community.
