The new policy incorporates language that would protect individuals from discrimination and harassment based upon their gender identity and gender expression. This change is also important as it reflects the protections that are available under Minnesota law and City of Minneapolis ordinance.
As a result of the policy change, the language of the Equal Opportunity Statement for inclusion in publications has been revised.
To review new versions of the medium and long form, they are available on the EOAA website at: www.eoaffact.umn.edu/resources/Policies/eostatement.html
Please distribute this information throughout your unit.
