Nevada Business Aviation Association (NVBAA) does not and shall not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion (creed), gender, gender expression, age, national origin (ancestry), disability, marital status, sexual orientation, or military status, in any of its activities or operations. These activities include, but are not limited to, hiring and firing of staff, selection of volunteers and vendors, and provision of services.
We are committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming environment for all members of our staff, volunteers, subcontractors, vendors, and clients.
NVBAA is an equal opportunity employer. We will not discriminate and will take affirmative action measures to ensure against discrimination in employment, recruitment, advertisements for employment, compensation, termination, upgrading, promotions, and other conditions of employment against any employee or job applicant on the bases of race, color, gender, national origin, age, religion, creed, disability, veteran’s status, sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression.
We are committed in all areas to providing an environment that is free from harassment. Harassment based upon an individual’s sex, sexual orientation, race, ethnicity, national origin, age, religion or any other legally protected characteristics will not be tolerated. All employees, including supervisors and other management personnel, are expected and required to abide by this policy. No person will be adversely affected in employment with our organization as a result of bringing complaints of unlawful harassment.
Sexual harassment is behavior of a sexual nature that is unwelcome and offensive to the person or persons it is targeted toward. Examples of harassing behavior may include unwanted physical contact, foul language of an offensive sexual nature, sexual propositions, sexual jokes or remarks, obscene gestures, and displays of pornographic or sexually explicit pictures, drawings, or caricatures. Use of our computer system for the purpose of viewing, displaying, or disseminating material that is sexual in nature may also constitute harassing behavior.
If an employee or volunteer feels that he or she has been harassed on the basis of his or her sex, sexual orientation, race, national origin, ethnic background, or any other legally protected characteristic, they should immediately report the matter to the NVBAA President, and one director or officer. Once the matter has been reported, it will be promptly investigated and any necessary corrective action will be taken where appropriate. All complaints of unlawful harassment will be handled in as discreet and confidential a manner as is possible under the circumstances. The procedure for reporting incidents of harassing behavior is not intended to impair, replace, or limit the right of any employee or volunteer to seek a remedy under available Nevada State or federal law by immediately reporting the matter to the appropriate state or federal agency.
Disciplinary Measures for Harassment
Any employee or volunteer of NVBAA engaging in improper harassing behavior will be subject to disciplinary action, including the possible termination of employment or volunteer role. Not every instance of harassing behavior will warrant immediate termination, but some may.
Diversity and Inclusion
At NVBAA, all of us contribute to inclusion. Most of us have differing cultural backgrounds, and are sensitive to those like us. Our culture from the inception has been to embrace diversity and inclusion. Many of the youth we have supported over the years have been from underrepresented groups, and from disadvantaged backgrounds. We embrace them, and provide them, and all youth, with equal access to the most advanced STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) education, and professional training programs.
We provide all of our STEM education support for youth, and professional training programs for youth and young adults, at no charge, and even provide scholarships for advanced technical certification exam fees, when we are able.
This is all because of our personal commitment to education excellence, our curiosity of the World around us, how we collaborate and bring people to go along with us on this journey, and the ways that we courageously and selflessly share our information, teachings, life-lessons and perspectives, and encourage others to do the same.
NVBAA’s inclusive culture empowers all of the dedicated NVBAA Officers and Ambassadors to connect, include, embrace, belong, advance and grow.
