“During my internship at West, I anticipated a safe, linear experience, but was thrust into many different roles and responsibilities that I never thought would be part of a simple internship. Near the end, I was offered a full-time position; I chose to join a great team.”
West thrives because we employ a diverse group of talented individuals. We encourage diversity in our workplace by implementing programs and guidelines that ensure all employees and job applicants are treated fairly. Our Equal Opportunity Employment/Affirmative Action Program helps us become better equipped to understand, address, and provide the comprehensive communications solutions that our clients rely on.
It is our practice that no employee or job applicant be treated unfairly on the basis of race, religion, sex, national origin, age, marital status, disability, or any factor unrelated to sound business practice.
If you have any questions or issues you’d like to discuss regarding Affirmative Action, please feel free to contact West’s Director of Affirmative Action, Connie Hildabrand, at 210-991-3478 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
