URC is Signatory of Professional Services Council’s Guiding Principles on Preventing Misconduct in the Workplace

URC is a proud signatory of the Guiding Principles on Preventing Harassment, Exploitation and Abuse by International Development Companies, prepared by the Coalition of International Development Companies (CIDC) of the Professional Services Council (PSC). PSC is a membership organization of nearly 400 companies that provide federal agencies with services. CIDC is comprised of PSC members who focus on work for the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the State Department, the U.S. President's Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), the Millennium Challenge Corporation, and other organizations. 

URC, along with 34 other signatories, believes that our employees and the people we serve must feel safe, protected, and respected in the workplace. The guiding principles confirm our commitment to ensure that we provide clear policies to prevent all forms of misconduct and clear procedures to prevent, detect, report, and resolve allegations of harassment, exploitation, and abuse. The guiding principles follow recent action by USAID Administrator Mark Green to form an Action Alliance for Preventing Sexual Misconduct and conduct an internal review of USAID's policies in this area.
