At Edmentum, valuing diversity extends beyond our affirmative action plan – to a complete culture of equitable and ethical business practices. Not only do we actively recruit and promote to increase diversity in the workplace, we build on the foundation of an inclusive community by requiring accountability from every employee to live by and follow Edmentum core values.
Through a diverse workforce that mirrors our diverse client populations, we’re better able to understand our customers and their needs, as well as help position our products and services in the market. By encouraging difference perspectives, ideas, and solutions, we enable our company to think more broadly, be more creative, and strive for flexibility as we encounter numerous environmental and organizational changes. What’s more, through a culture of inclusion, fair practices, and equal opportunity, we attract and retain the best employees.
At Edmentum, diversity management is a strategic approach to running a business. We believe in capitalizing on our differences to align them with business opportunities. Our managers strive to maximize productivity, creativity, and retention of diverse talent – so we can give our broad customer base the best educational solutions.
It has been and continues to be the policy of Edmentum to provide equal employment opportunity (“EEO”) to applicants and employees without regard to their race, color, creed, religion, national origin, ancestry, sex, age, disability, status as a disabled, recently separated, Armed Forces service medal or other protected veteran (“covered veterans”), marital status, status with regard to public assistance, sexual orientation or any other characteristic protected by applicable federal, state or local laws. Furthermore, it is Edmentum’s policy to undertake affirmative action in recruiting applicants for employment in compliance with federal, state and local requirements.
Edmentum does not discriminate against students on the basis of race, color, gender, sex, gender identity, disability, religion, ancestry, national or ethnic origin, or any characteristic that is legally protected under applicable local, state or federal law in the administration of its educational policies, behavior policies, admissions policies, scholarship and loan programs, athletic or other school-administered programs.
Edmentum adheres to Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 prohibits discrimination on the basis of disability in federally funded programs. This section was modeled on Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972. Title VI prohibits programs receiving federal funds from discriminating against students on the basis of race or national origin; Title IX does so on the basis of gender. Section 504, Title VI, and Title IX all apply to school-to-work systems and programs. Students who are limited-English proficient are also protected by the Equal Educational Opportunities Act of 1974, which requires educational agencies to take action to overcome language barriers that impede equal participation by students in instructional programs.
