Employment Equity at the CBC

The CBC, says its employment equity policy, is “committed to equality in employment and career opportunities for people who have been underrepresented in the Canadian labour force.”

Apparently this spirit of reparative generosity extends to the multi-gendered among us, as their employment application, in the section for “Sex,” contains checkboxes for “Female” and “Male,” both of which can be checked at the same time.

The CBC should be lauded for this overwhelming spirit of inclusiveness.

It makes you wonder if there is really a need for the checkbox in the first place — statistical reasons? I suppose you want a good balance of men/women.

I believe there is a support group for Transgendered(sp?) Islanders. I suppose CBC found it easier to allow users to check both boxes rather than add a third option, “All of the Above.”
