Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action Policy


The Wilder Foundation provides Equal Employment Opportunity to all employees and applicants for employment in accordance with all applicable equal employment/affirmative action laws, directives and regulations of federal, state, and local governing bodies or agencies thereof, specifically Minnesota Statute 363 and Saint Paul Legislative Code Section 183.04.

The Foundation does not discriminate against or harass any employee or applicant for employment on the basis of race, color, creed, religion, national origin, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, disability, age, marital status, familial status, pregnancy, genetics, veteran or military status, or status in regard to public assistance.

The Wilder Foundation takes affirmative action to assure its practices are free of such discrimination. These practices include, but are not limited to, the following: hiring, promotion, demotion, transfer, recruitment or recruitment advertising, selection, layoff, disciplinary action, termination, rates of pay or other forms of compensation, and selection for training or development opportunities.

The Foundation commits the necessary time and resources, both financial and human, to achieve the goals of Equal Employment Opportunity and Affirmative Action.

The Wilder Foundation evaluates the performance of its management and supervisory personnel on the basis of their involvement in achieving these Affirmative Action objectives as well as other established criteria. Any employee or contractor of this organization who does not comply with the Equal Opportunity policies and procedures as set forth in this statement will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination of employment.
