The Role of the Ombuds

The Role of the APSA Meetings Ombuds is to:

  • confidentially hear and discuss your concerns with you
  • provide you with valuable guidance and resources for understanding what constitutes sexual harassment and other forms of harassment
  • provide information on, and help explain, options for reporting sexual harassment to APSA
  • outline other avenues and information for pursuing such a complaint
  • offer support and guidance even if you elect to pursue no complaint procedures or reporting whatsoever

Please note: The APSA Meetings Ombuds plays no role in APSA’s sexual harassment procedures. The Ombuds does not provide legal advice and is not authorized to be an office of notice for APSA.
