Equal Opportunities Policy Statement
CWS strives to be an equal opportunity employer. As an ecumenical employer of staff, we aim to ensure that all job applicants, staff, consultants and/or volunteers, do not suffer unfair discrimination on the basis of their race, color, nationality, ethnic origin or religious belief, social class or casts, age, disability, marital status/family situation, or gender. We aim to ensure that all people with whom we work are valued for their contributions and are given the opportunity to realize their full potential within the organization. Recruitment, selection and other procedures try to ensure that individuals are given equal opportunity in recruitment, training and promotion, and are treated on the basis of their relevant abilities and merits according to the requirements of the job. Where appropriate, particular attention will be paid to the recruitment of people with disabilities, people of ethnic and religious minorities, and women. CWS is committed to a program of action to make this policy fully effective, and to this end constantly reviews the procedures, practices and guidelines that underpin this policy and monitors the results as appropriate. There may be occasions when nationality or family situations have to be taken into account, for example, during civil or other wars or when a balance of national and expatriate staff has been agreed for particular programs/offices. Any such exception will occur only after careful consideration in the light of the needs of our program and will be subject to review as circumstances change. Subject only to such situations, the principle of equal opportunities will apply to recruitment, promotion, transfer, training and all terms and conditions of employment. There are variations between the details of conditions for staff working in different offices, but these will be within the framework of the staff charter, and follow the underlying philosophies of CWS adapted to local contexts rather than a radical departure from them. CWS believes that following a policy of equality of opportunity will benefit not only the individual but will also benefit and enrich the organization as a whole.
