Quality Statement

The most valuable asset of our organization is our people. It is our policy to provide Equal Employment to all Fish and Wildlife Service (FWS) employees and applicants.  All individuals are entitled to work in an environment free from discrimination and unlawful harassment.  Allegations of unlawful discrimination 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, genetic information, status as a parent, and reprisal. The FWS assures the full realization of its stated objective through a continuous procedure of monitoring, reporting, and enhancing the workplace to ensure equal opportunity and inclusion.
