Diversity and Inclusion
At DeskMakers, we continually celebrate the strengths of all people and are committed to creating a diverse environment that highlights those strengths as part of our core values. As an equal opportunity employer, we stay true to this commitment and strive to create a better workplace for all.
DeskMakers, Inc. is committed to providing equal employment opportunities to all qualified applicants and employees without discrimination with regard to race (including protective hairstyles and hair texture), religious creed (including religious observance, dress or grooming practices), color, sex, sex stereotype, pregnancy, childbirth or related medical conditions (including breast feeding), age (40 years or over), sexual orientation, gender, gender identification and expression, transgender status, transitioning employees, physical or mental disability, medical condition (including cancer), genetic characteristics, genetic information, family care, marital status, registered domestic partner status, enrollment in any public assistance program, status as military, a veteran or qualified disabled veteran, status as an unpaid intern or volunteer, ancestry, citizenship, national origin, protected medical leaves (including a request for or approval of leave under applicable leave of absence laws), domestic violence victim status, political affiliation, or any other classification protected by law (“Protected Characteristics”). We also prohibit discrimination based on the perception that anyone has any of those Protected Characteristics, or is associated with a person who has or is perceived as having any of those Protected Characteristics.
For purposes of national origin discrimination, improper and unlawful conduct includes, but is not limited to, an employee’s or applicant’s (or that individual’s ancestors’) actual or perceived physical, cultural, or linguistic characteristics associated with a national origin group, marriage to or association with persons of a national origin group, tribal affiliation, membership in or association with an organization identified with or seeking to promote the interests of a national origin group, attendance or participation in schools, churches, temples, mosques, or other religious institutions generally used by persons of a national origin group, and a name that is associated with a national origin group, possessing a driver’s license issued under Vehicle Code § 12801.9, or any other characteristic protected by law.
We are committed to maintaining a work environment which is free from discrimination. We believe it is offensive to abuse another person’s dignity through ethnic, racist or sexist slurs, or other derogatory or objectionable conduct. We will not discriminate against another applicant or employee because of that person’s actual or perceived Protected Characteristics. We will not tolerate discrimination by any employee (including supervisors, managers or co-workers), volunteer, intern, or independent contractor of the Company, or by any outside persons in contact with our employees, volunteers, interns, and independent contractors (including our customers, potential customers, vendors, delivery persons, etc.). This policy extends to conduct with a connection to the workplace, even when the conduct takes place away from our premises, such as a business trip or business-related social function. We will reasonably accommodate the known physical or mental disabilities or religious beliefs or practices of an otherwise qualified applicant or employee, unless undue hardship would result.
