Model Policy: Nondiscrimination and diversity

Why you need this model policy:

Offering equal opportunity to individuals regardless of race, ethnicity, religion, national origin, gender, age, sexual orientation, disability, or other personal characteristics not related to their professional abilities is not just a legal mandate but an economic imperative.

How this model policy helps you:

The key to ensuring diversity and avoiding discrimination in all forms—direct and indirect, deliberate and intentional—is to establish a written diversity policy like the Model Policy below.

How to use this model policy:

Customize this policy and use it at your medical practice.

The very idea of a generic, one-size-fits-all diversity policy flies in the face of diversity principles. To do justice to diversity, each medical practice must craft its own unique policy, one that doesn’t simply express support for the concept of diversity but sets out the specific things the practice actually does to promote diversity both in the office and community. However, a Model Policy like the one below, which comes from a number of different actual examples, can help you organize your own policy and ensure it includes all of the important information needed to be effective.
