Staff Diversity/Affirmative Action Policy
Rio Hondo College has a commitment to make equal employment opportunities
available for all persons and to prohibit discriminations based on race, sex,
color, religion, age, disability, medical condition, marital status, ancestry or
national origin, sexual orientation, and status as a Vietnam-era veteran, in
every aspect of personnel policy and practice in employment, development,
advancement, and treatment of persons employed in the District.
Additionally, Rio Hondo College will make efforts to recruit, employ, and
promote members of groups formerly excluded at the various levels of
responsibility who meet statewide minimum qualifications, if any, and who,
relative to local qualifications, are qualified or may become qualified through
appropriate training or experience within a reasonable length of time.
Rio Hondo College acknowledges that affirmative action requires imaginative,
energetic, and sustained action by each member of the campus community to devise
recruiting, training, and career advancement opportunities which will result in
an equitable representation of women and minorities in relation to all employees
of the District.
