(Excerpt from the United Way of Southwest Oklahoma's Personnel Policies: Article 2- Equal Opportunity)
To ensure equal employment opportunity for all job applicants and all present United Way of Southwest Oklahoma employees consistent with the intent of Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1964.
The United Way remains committed to the concept and practice of providing equal employment opportunity to all employees and applicants. It is our policy to judge each person on his/her own merit and to provide employment and advancement opportunities accordingly. The spirit of this policy applies also to persons served by the United Way, to membership on the governing board, and to all committees and other volunteers.
- Equal Opportunity
It is the policy of United Way to provide equal opportunity to all qualified employees and applicants without discrimination because of race, color, religion, ethnic or national origin, gender, sexual orientation, age, marital status, pregnancy, child birth or related medical condition, physical handicap, mental condition, or any other factor unrelated to job requirements and job performance.
This obligation, to provide equal opportunity, encompasses all phases of employment including recruitment, selection, assignment, (or classification), promotion, demotion, and selection for training. Similarly all salaries, wages, other compensation, insurance programs, pension, retirement programs, and all other benefits of privilege of employment will be administered in conformity with this policy.
