Equal Employment Opportunity Statement

Our Differences Make Us Stronger

As an equal opportunity employer, we do not discriminate against any employee or applicant on the basis of age, ancestry, color, family or medical leave, gender identity or expression, genetic information, marital status, medical condition, national origin, physical or mental disability, political affiliation, protected veteran status, race, religion, sex (including pregnancy), sexual orientation, or any other characteristic protected by applicable laws, regulations, and ordinances.

We adhere to these principles in all aspects of employment, including recruitment, hiring, training, compensation, promotion, benefits, social and recreational programs, and discipline. This is the law, but it also reflects our beliefs and our culture.

Lastly, we recognize that women and minorities sometimes do not apply for positions where they don’t meet all of the preferred skills and experiences. In this case, we encourage applicants to apply and provide further details about relevant prior experience in their cover letter.
