Kaiser-Din Foundation (KDF) is committed to the principle that discrimination and harassment is unacceptable
and must not be tolerated. The KDF expects that participants in the continuing medical education community
will be able to work and learn in an atmosphere that discourages discrimination and harassment by colleagues,
supervisors, teachers, speakers, peers, other staff members, and patients. This principle applies in all areas of
continuing medical education, including employment and training. The KDF applies this principle to its own
staff, to program faculty and staff members, to residents and fellows, as well as to all visitors, invitees, vendors,
contractors, consultants, and others who do business with the KDF.
The KDF prohibits unlawful discrimination on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, sex, age,
disability, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, veteran status, marital status or any other
characteristic protected by applicable law in the administration of the KDF’s programs and activities; the KDF
also prohibits unlawful harassment including sexual harassment and sexual violence.
The facilities for KDF’s programs and activities are accessible to and usable by disabled persons, thereby
insuring that no qualified disabled person shall be denied the benefits of, be excluded from participation in, or
be otherwise subjected to discrimination under any program or activity. Recognizing that sexual harassment
constitutes discrimination on the basis of sex, the KDF shall not tolerate such conduct. Any person who believes
him/her, or any specific class of individuals, to be subjected to discrimination prohibited by Title VI Public Law
88-352, 1964; Title IX, Public Law 88-380, 1972; Section 504, Rehabilitation Act, 1973; the Americans with
Disabilities Act of 1990; and Regulations issued thereunder may, by him/her or a representative, file with the
United States Commissioner of Education, or with the KDF, or both, a written complaint.
