Message from Chairman Gruenberg - EEO Policy Statement
March 7, 2017
I am pleased to once again emphasize the FDICís commitment to the principles of equal employment opportunity. It is the FDIC's policy to provide every individual with an equal opportunity in all of our employment programs and business activities, and to prohibit discrimination in all aspects of our personnel operations (including recruitment, hiring, promotions, training, awards, reorganizations and employee retention).
I expect every employee - staff and supervisors - to ensure that the FDIC maintains the highest standards for inclusiveness and to continue our efforts to strengthen and sustain our position as a model workplace and employer of choice. Therefore, I ask each of you to take responsibility for knowing the FDICís equal employment policies and cooperating fully in their implementation. It is essential that we continue to cultivate and foster a workplace culture of excellence that is inclusive and supportive of diversity, and safe and free from hostility or harassment. In such a workplace, we embrace our differences; everyone is treated with dignity and respect, and has the freedom to compete on a fair and level playing field, on an equal basis.
I am confident that all of you will become familiar with and adhere to the EEO principles and affirm our zero tolerance for prohibited, discriminatory behavior. We must continue to conduct ourselves with professional courtesy and advance the principles of workplace access and inclusion.
