In addition, our personnel policies and practices – including those relating to compensation, benefits, transfer, retention, termination, training, self-development opportunities, as well as social and recreational programs – are administered without discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, age, national orientation, sexual orientation, disability, veteran status, or other basis prohibited by law.

When we are hiring or promoting in those job categories in which women, minorities, disabled individuals, or qualified covered veterans are underutilized, we will take affirmative action to seek out qualified applicants in those categories in order to meet the specified goals of our affirmative action plan.
