Equity and Inclusion

Wisconsin Department of Veterans Affairs Equity and Inclusion​​

The WDVA hereby reaffirms our commitment to the principles of diversity, equity, and inclusion for all employees and applicants without regard to an individual's race, color, sex, religion, national origin, age, disability, genetic information, or marital status.

The WDVA is firmly committed to meeting the state laws and policies, as well as federal laws, for equal employment opportunity and affirmative action. The WDVA recognizes that equal employment opportunity is a legal, organizational, and economic necessity in order to maximize the quality and diversity of the state’s workforce. This commitment is extended to all job applicants and employees in every type of position, including unclassified, classified, project, limited-term, volunteers, interns, and work-study personnel.

As part of the WDVA commitment to this overall process, we intend to apply diversity, equity, and inclusion principles to all employment policies, procedures, and programs to ensure equal employment opportunity and freedom from discrimination, including recruitment, selection, job assignment, training, compensation, benefits, discipline, promotion, transfer, layoff, and termination processes. Reasonable accommodation will be provided, as requested, to employees and applicants with disabilities.
