Mutual respect policy

How we show respect for one another

The ITF is opposed to any discrimination based on colour, nationality, sex, race or creed.

We are committed to creating and maintaining a working environment based on dignity and mutual respect. The ITF and its affiliates neither condone nor tolerate behaviour that undermines the dignity or self esteem of any individual or creates an intimidating, hostile, abusive or offensive environment. This commitment applies to all delegates and participants, women and men, in ITF meetings, activities and social gatherings wherever they may take place around the world.

As an employer the ITF has a legal as well as moral responsibility to protect its employees from any form of harassment, abuse or similarly unacceptable behaviour. This applies globally. It also applies to social occasions where the attendance of ITF staff is linked to their employment and where the ITF is liable as an employer.

ITF employees are encouraged to report any incident of harassment or abuse.
