Hotline reporting and increasing awareness
At the BOMA Project, we take our commitment to integrity and fairness extremely seriously. To that end, we have set up a Hotline for employees or stakeholders to be able to report concerns. All complaints will be treated with seriousness and investigated, without fear of reprisal to the complainant. We have distributed a communication guide in each of our offices for employees to refer to. Anonymous calls may be made to 833-480-0010 in the U.S. or in Kenya, using access code 0-207-602-020 then dial toll-free 800-603-2869 or visit
Our senior leadership is committed to BOMA as a workplace free of sexual misconduct and the need for hotline reporting through regular organization-wide communications and learning events, as well as guiding our team leaders to have those communications with their teams.
