  • What is Affirmative Action?

    Affirmative Action is a program of positive action, undertaken with conviction and effort to overcome the present effects of past practices, policies, or barriers to equal employment opportunity. Our goal is to achieve the full and fair participation of women, minorities and individuals with disabilities found to be underutilized in the workforce based on availability.

    Affirmative Action establishes fair access to employment opportunities in order to create a workforce that is an accurate reflection of the demographics of the qualified, available workforce in the relevant job market.

    Affirmative Action policies and programs are tools made to recruit, hire and promote qualified women, minorities and individuals with disabilities.
