I expect the support of all employees in attaining and maintaining our goals for a workplace free of discrimination. Equal employment opportunity is not accomplished at the expense of any group or individual, but rather it is good business practice and it contributes to an organization enriched by diversity and excellence.

Innovation is determined to be in full compliance with the provisions of the Law and of the Affirmative Action Program.
