Non-Discrimination Policy and Diversity and Inclusion

At MIR, we celebrate diversity and are committed to inclusion across race, gender, age, religion, identity, and experience. In our employment and admissions policies, we do not discriminate based on race, color, creed, gender (including gender identity and gender expression), religion, marital status, registered domestic partner status, age, national origin or ancestry, physical or mental disability, medical condition (including cancer and genetic characteristics), genetic information, sexual orientation, or any other consideration made unlawful by federal, state, or local laws. This prohibition includes a perception that anyone has any of these characteristics or is associated with a person who has or is perceived to have any of these characteristics. We strive to build and nurture a culture where inclusiveness is a reflex, and where children and adults from any background can do their best work.
