The Office of Equal Employment Opportunity Accommodation Services

The George Washington University (GW) promotes equal employment by ensuring equitable outcomes in all areas of employment related to recruitment, selection and employment. GW works to promote and maintain a non-discriminatory, diverse work environment and prohibits impartial treatment on the basis of race, color, religion, sex, national origin, age, disability, veteran status, sexual orientation or gender identity.

The Office of Equal Employment Opportunity & Employee Relations office (EEO/ER) ensures all applicants, staff, faculty and visitors are afforded reasonable religious and medical accommodations and equal access to all campus sponsored events to maintain an equitable work environment, in accordance with Title 1 of the Americans with Disabilities Act Amendments Act of 2008 (ADAAA), through the interactive process. The interactive process is a discussion with the employee, medical provider and manager to ensure the employee receives the most appropriate accommodation to perform the essential functions of the job.

GW’s EEO/ER office provides consultative services to assist staff, faculty and visitors by providing and coordinating disability and religious reasonable accommodations, in accordance with Title 1 of the ADAAA. For assistance, contact [email protected]
