Reporting Discrimination

If you believe you have been discriminated against or harassed based upon your sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression, you can file a report with EDI.  We will consult with you to determine how you would like to proceed.  If you choose to have your concerns investigated, EDI will conduct this investigation through the procedure described in the Discrimination and Harassment policy.
