Equal Employment Opportunity Plan
The Redwoods Community College District Equal Employment Opportunity Plan (Plan) was adopted by the governing board on March 7, 2017. The Plan reflects the district's commitment to equal employment opportunity. It is the district's belief that taking active and vigorous steps to ensure equal employment opportunity and creating a working and academic environment, which is welcoming to all, will foster diversity and promote excellence.
Through an educational experience in an inclusive environment, our students will be better prepared to work and live in an increasingly global society. The plan's immediate focus is equal employment opportunity in its recruitment and hiring policies and practices pursuant to the applicable Title 5 regulations (section 53000 et seq.) and the steps the district shall take in the event of underrepresentation of monitored groups. The Plan contains an analysis of the demographic makeup of the district's workforce population and an analysis of whether underrepresentation of monitored groups exists. The Plan also includes the requirements for a complaint procedure for noncompliance with the Title 5 provisions relating to equal employment opportunity programs; complaint procedures in instances of unlawful discrimination; establishment of an Equal Employment Opportunity Advisory Committee; methods to support equal employment opportunity and an environment which is welcoming to all; and procedures for dissemination of the Plan. To properly serve a growing diverse population, the district will endeavor to hire and retain faculty and staff who are sensitive to, and knowledgeable of, the needs of the continually changing student body it serves.
