Anti-Discrimination Policy For Hiring
ACR-GNY believes in equality. We actively work to lift up all voices in our field, expand access to our events, and encourage a diverse representation in speakers and presenters. We take measures to ensure against discrimination in employment, recruitment, and compensation on the basis of race, color, gender, national origin, age, religion, creed, disability, veteran's status, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. Women, people of color, members of the LGBTQ+ communities, veterans, and people with disabilities are encouraged to apply.
Diverse Speaker Guidelines
The Association for Conflict Resolution, Greater New York (ACR-GNY) is committed to fostering a more diverse and inclusive ADR profession, which encompasses without limitation, race, color, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, religion, nationality, age, disability, and belonging to historically underrepresented communities.
The ACR-GNY Board (the Board) hosts, co-hosts, sponsors, co-sponsors or may otherwise be affiliated with CLE and non-CLE programs and events (Programs) involving highly qualified speakers every year. The Board believes that the quality of these Programs is enhanced by presenting a variety of perspectives and by including speakers from different backgrounds. This policy applies to all Programs, individually and in the aggregate over time, regardless of how many speakers there may be for a particular Program. Moreover, the Board pledges that all Programs which consist of three or more speakers, including the moderator, shall be comprised of at least one participant who is diverse from the other two speakers.
As such, the Board will not host, co-host, sponsor, co-sponsor, or otherwise be affiliated with or seek CLE accreditation for any Program that fails to comply with this policy. An exception may only be granted by a majority vote of the Board.
