Quality Statement

The most valuable asset of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is our people. It is our policy to provide Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) to all FWS employees and applicants. All individuals are entitled to an environment free from discrimination and sexual harassment. Allegations of discrimination and sexual harassment will be given prompt attention and resolved as expeditiously as possible.

Our goal is to ensure that all applicants and employees receive equality of opportunity. This objective calls for a work environment free of discrimination based on race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, sexual orientation, disability, and reprisal. The Service assures the full realization of its stated objective through a continuous procedure of monitoring and reporting.
