I wish to reaffirm and reemphasize that this policy applies throughout the Company and each of its subsidiaries.

(2) We will base decisions on employment so as to further the principle of equal employment opportunity;
(3) We will ensure that employment decisions are in accord with principles of equal employment opportunity by imposing only valid job requirements;
(4) We will ensure that all personnel actions such as compensation, benefits, transfers, promotions, layoffs, return from layoff, Company sponsored training, education, tuition assistance, social and recreational programs, will be administered without regard to race, religion, color, sex, disability, national origin, age, covered veterans’ status or any other protected group status.
Overall responsibility for the implementation of this policy is delegated to the Nichelle Williams, who is hereby designated as the Equal Employment Coordinator.
