Susan G. Komen Headquarters and its Affiliates encourage concerned individuals to report any improper conduct by Komen Headquarters, its Affiliates or their respective directors, officers, employees or volunteers (collectively, “Komen Representatives”). An individual may report such matters by contacting his or her local Komen Community or Komen Headquarters or using the reporting submission box below to submit an electronic report. If the individual does not wish to disclose his or her identity, the individual may mail a report to Susan G. Komen, 5600 W. Lovers Lane, Suite 116 #119, Dallas, TX 75209-4330, U.S.A. (this address is an independent mail forwarding service that will delete the claimant's identity and then forward the correspondence directly to Komen’s Legal Department) or submit the report anonymously through the submission box below.
Reports will be kept confidential to the extent possible, consistent with the need to conduct an adequate investigation and take appropriate remedial action. Reports will be promptly investigated and appropriate corrective action will be taken if warranted.
Anyone reporting a concern may request an acknowledgement that the report has been received by Komen Headquarters and/or the appropriate Komen Affiliate. Persons who elect to identify themselves may request an acknowledgement in the initial report. Requests for an acknowledgement may also be made anonymously through the independent mail forwarding service, which will notify Komen of the request but not disclose the individual's identity or address. Komen will submit the acknowledgement to the mail forwarding service, which will forward it to the anonymous reporter’s designated address on a strictly confidential basis.
Komen Representatives who make a report in good faith shall not suffer harassment, retaliation or adverse employment as a consequence of the report. An employee who retaliates against someone who has reported a violation in good faith is subject to discipline up to and including termination of employment. Any allegations that prove meritless and which were made maliciously or with knowledge of their falsity will be viewed as a serious disciplinary offense.
