NASA Astrophysics Statement of Principles

  • Full Document [PDF]

NASA Astrophysics is committed to fully implementing the core value of Inclusion as defined by the agency. NASA Astrophysics is committed to making its working environment an inclusive, safe, and harassment- and bullying-free space. Everyone working under the auspices of NASA Astrophysics should feel welcome and supported in their ability to do their job, regardless of any characteristic unrelated to the ability to do one’s job including (but not limited to) age, body size, disability, economic or social status, family status, gender or gender presentation, nationality, neurodivergence, physical appearance, race, religion, or sexual orientation.

Inclusion is a NASA core value.
