EEO and Diversity
Because California State University, Fresno has federal contracts and/or subcontracts, it is required by federal law to develop a written affirmative action program for women and minorities in compliance with Executive Order 11246 ("EO 11246"), for disabled veterans and Vietnam-era veterans ("Veterans") in compliance with the Vietnam Era Veterans' Readjustment Act of 1974 (38 USC 4212), as amended ("VEVRA"), and for individuals with disabilities in compliance with Section 503 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 ("Rehab Act"). Affirmative action means to recruit and advance qualified minorities, women, persons with disabilities, and Veterans in employment. Accordingly, affirmative action must take place in all aspects of employment, i.e., recruitment, selection, job assignment, promotion, compensation, discipline, termination, access to benefits, training and other personnel actions.
