Equal Opportunity, Anti-Discrimination and Sexual Harassment Policy of the Galloway Family Foundation

Affirmative Action Policy
Affirmative action is comprised of the measures taken to prevent unlawful employment discrimination and to remedy the effects of past discrimination. These measures include, but are not limited to, efforts to recruit, hire, employ, train, and promote non-whites, women, and individuals with handicaps/disabilities.

Galloway Family Foundation (“GFF”) has a commitment to recruit, hire, promote, train, and retain qualified non-whites, women, and individuals with handicaps/disabilities, and to affirmatively address any imbalances between our workforce.
