Equal Opportunity Policy
ECS Policy #20: Equal Opportunity
Episcopal Community Services believes in the inherent right of persons to its services, to employment and to be volunteers, regardless of race, religion, color, sex, age, sexual orientation, disability, Limited English Proficiency (LEP), gender identity or national origin.
ECS will insure the existence of equal opportunities as reflected in the following areas: staff recruitment and hiring, transfer, promotion, compensation, benefits, layoffs, training, volunteer service and outreach and services to persons needing services. The task of the agency is to work to eliminate all patterns of unequal treatment.
The President of the Board of Trustees and the Executive Director are responsible for the implementation of this policy. Each year, the ECS Leadership Team will review patterns of hiring and employment and of people receiving services to discern any problems with access or inadvertent discrimination. Action plans to correct any such problems will be put into place and reports will be made to the Board of Trustees regarding the reviews and any correction plans instituted.
