Non-discrimination policy at work

By , September 10, 2008 10:29 am

We have a non-discrimination policy for our classes which is printed in our brochure and previously read “[we don’t discrminiate] on the basis of race, creed, color, sex, age, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, marital or veteran status.” I’d asked my boss before about including gender identity on the list (after praising him for including sexual orientation) and never heard back, so I assumed he hadn’t done it and I’d have to bug him again before the next session.

But today we got the brochure proof and low-and-behold: “[we don’t discrminiate] on the basis of race, creed, color, sex, age, national origin, disability, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital or veteran status.” (Emphasis added.)

It’s pretty neat to feel like you’ve made a difference, even a little one.
