The federal government is committed to ensuring the civil rights of all customers and employees. Every customer and every employee must be treated fairly and equitably and with dignity and respect. The federal government prohibits discrimination in all its programs and activities on the basis of race, color, national origin, gender, religion, age, disability, political beliefs, sexual orientation, and marital or family status. By our words and actions, each of us must demonstrate a commitment to equal opportunity for all individuals. To be successful, we must embrace and value diversity and strengthen our commitment to an equitable and discrimination-free workplace.
