UW Employees May Self-Identify in Diversity Survey
University of Wyoming employees can self-identify as members of federally recognized populations by taking a survey through the UW Human Resources website.
As part of UW’s diversity initiative, and to comply with federal regulations, the university will conduct a voluntary employee self-identification survey, also known as “The Invitation to Self-Identify,” every five years. This is a confidential process in which employees can self-identify race/ethnic background, protected veteran status and disability status. Self-identification is possible at any point after hiring; however, the university is conducting a resurvey of the entire workforce.
Additional information and instructions for taking the survey can be found on the Human Resources website at http://www.uwyo.edu/hr/. If you do not have access to a computer, contact the Human Resources office.
Information from the voluntary survey will be maintained separately from employment records, and declining to participate will not result in any adverse action. Those who decide to participate in the survey are asked to complete it by May 12.
Federal regulations provide definitions for race, ethnic background, protected veteran status and disability status. If you have questions about the definitions or the survey, contact UW Diversity and Employment Practices at 766-3459.
