The State of Oregon is committed to achieving a workforce that represents the diversity of Oregon community and is a leader in providing its citizens fair and equal employment opportunity.
The Board of Licensed Professional Counselors and Therapists is committed to achieving a work force that represents the diversity of Oregon’s population and to providing fair and equal employment opportunities. The Board is committed to an affirmative action program that provides equal opportunities for all persons regardless or race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, national origin, marital status, age or disability. The Board provides an environment for each applicant and employee that is free from sexual harassment, as well as harassment and intimidation on account of an individual’s race, color, religion, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, age, marital status or disability. The Board employment practices are consistent with the State’s Affirmative Action Plan Guidelines and with state and federal laws, which preclude discrimination.
