Gaudenzia is a government contractor and to comply with the regulations for equal employment opportunity and affirmative action (EEO/AA), we must track our applicants by gender and race/ethnicity and the position they applied for to the government. We are an organization that values diversity and encourages women and minorities to apply. For this reason, we invite you to indicate your gender and race/ethnicity below. This information will be kept separate from your application of employment.
Submission of this information is voluntary and refusal to provide it will not subject you to any adverse treatment. Responses will remain confidential within the Human Resources Department; and will be used only for the necessary information to include in our Affirmative Action Program and reporting requirements to the government. When reported, data will not identify any specific individuals.

Because we do business with the government, we must reach out to, hire, and provide equal opportunity to qualified people with disabilitiesi. To help us measure how well we are doing, we are asking you to tell us if you have a disability or if you ever had a disability. Completing this form is voluntary, but we hope that you will choose to fill it out. If you are applying for a job, any answer you give will be kept private and will not be used against you in any way.
If you already work for us, your answer will not be used against you in any way. Because a person may become disabled at any time, we are required to ask all of our employees to update their information every five years. You may voluntarily self-identify as having a disability on this form without fear of any punishment because you did not identify as having a disability earlier.
You are considered to have a disability if you have a physical or mental impairment or medical condition that substantially limits a major life activity, or if you have a history or record of such an impairment or medical condition.
Disabilities include, but are not limited to:
Federal law requires employers to provide reasonable accommodation to qualified individuals with disabilities. Please tell us if you require a reasonable accommodation to apply for a job or to perform your job. Examples of reasonable accommodation include making a change to the application process or work procedures, providing documents in an alternate format, using a sign language interpreter, or using specialized equipment.
