ChildCareEd affords equal opportunity to all employees and prospective employees without regard to race, color, sex, gender, sexual orientation, religion, age, marital status, socio-economic status, disability, veteran status or national origin or other criteria protected by law.
ChildCareEd is committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our community and to ensuring that activities and employment decisions are based on individuals’ abilities and qualifications. Consistent with this principle and applicable laws, it is therefore the Non Profit Learning Institute’s policy not to discriminate in offering access to its programs and activities or with respect to employment terms and conditions on the basis of race, color, gender, national origin, age, religion, creed, disability, veteran's status, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. Such a policy ensures that only relevant factors are considered and that equitable and consistent standards of conduct and performance are applied.
ChildCareEd prohibits discrimination on the basis of race, color, religion, creed, sex, age, marital status, national origin, mental or physical disability, political belief or affiliation, veteran status, sexual orientation, genetic information, and any other class of individuals protected from discrimination under state or federal law in any aspect of the access to, admission, or treatment of individuals in its programs and activities, or in employment and application for employment.
Furthermore, ChildCareEd includes prohibitions of harassment of program participants, customers, and employees, i.e., racial harassment, sexual harassment, and retaliation for filing complaints of discrimination.
Speakers and presenter involved in developing, administering, and delivering education sessions, special tracks, workshops or presentation at any NHSA event are expected to maintain a high standard of professionalism and are not to discriminate or make discriminatory remarks based on gender, ethnicity, religion, age, disability, socioeconomic status, and/or sexual orientation.
We encourage trainers to share their professional experiences and knowledge of specific topic areas. ChildCareEd does not condone or endorse trainers to use slander or discriminate based on gender, religion, age, and ability. Trainers associated with ChildCareEd are expected to adhere ChildCareEd anti-discriminatory policies and procedures.
