Discrimination is real and among the largest social problem facing our country and our planet. Discrimination involves unfair treatment against certain individuals or groups of people. This unfair treatment has a profound effect within our society to include; employment, housing, finance, education, health care, and even our political and justice systems.
Because our country has one of the greatest representations of diversity, we will continue to face these very unfortunate problems related to race and national origin. We believe education is the key to helping us thrive and live together in peace. But first we must come together and have difficult conversations to identify why and how these problems manifest themselves. Ignoring the problem has never solved a problem. Ignoring the problem is a cover-up where many organizations have found complacency. In this world, diversity and inclusion are greater than any weapon - because it is one.
The following types of discrimination have been identified by the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
EQUAL PAY / COMPENSATION
RACE / COLOR
