Food & Nutrition Launches Pledge of Professional Civility

10/25/2017 - The Academy’s flagship magazine, Food & Nutrition, has launched an initiative to help foster community and constructive discourse among peers: The Pledge of Professional Civility.

Announced during FNCE® by Academy President Donna Martin at the Member Showcase and discussed during the FNCE® session on Cyberbullying, presented by Academy President-elect Mary Russell and Past-President Connie Diekman, the Pledge of Professional Civility is a voluntary, public commitment to the civil treatment of professional peers, including those with whom we may not agree on all issues.

Anyone is welcome to review the Guiding Principles and supporting resources, take the Pledge of Professional Civility and help demonstrate positive, productive engagement among our community. Learn more at
