Our Commitment to Diversity

We are proud to be an Equal Employment Opportunity (EEO) and Affirmative Action Employer. We have established Affirmative Action Programs and are committed to cultivating a workplace in which diverse perspectives and experiences are valued, welcomed, and respected. We engage in affirmative action measures to ensure that qualified applicants are employed. We are committed to providing equal employment opportunities to all individuals regardless of race, citizenship, ethnicity, color, creed, religion, marital status, national origin, ancestry, sex, age, veteran status, mental or physical disability (including HIV and AIDS), pregnancy, caregiver status, domestic or sexual violence victim status, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, or on the basis of genetic information, or any other characteristic protected by federal, state, or local law, with respect to all terms and conditions of employment.

To comply with applicable laws ensuring equal employment opportunities, the Institute will attempt to make reasonable accommodations as required by law. Issues subject to reasonable accommodation may include religious belief or practice, gender identity, pregnancy or disability as required by law. For further information on accommodation of disabilities see the Americans with Disability Act (ADA) Policy.

We encourage individuals with diverse backgrounds to apply and desire priority referrals of protected veterans. If due to a disability you need assistance/and or reasonable accommodations during the application or hiring process, please contact 215-898-3765 or send an email to
