MISSION

The National Endowment for the Arts' Office of Civil Rights and Equal Employment Opportunity (OCREEO) is responsible for the development, implementation, and coordination of all aspects of two civil rights programs. For programs and activities receiving federal financial assistance from the Arts Endowment, this includes the administration of the nondiscrimination statutes that prohibit discrimination on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability. This also includes prohibiting discrimination on the basis of disability in programs conducted by the Arts Endowment. 

For employees and applicants for employment with the National Endowment for the Arts, OCREEO is responsible for the administration of nondiscrimination statutes that prohibit discrimination in employment on the basis of race, color, religion, sex (including pregnancy, sexual orientation, or gender identity), national origin, age (40 or older), disability, genetic information (including family medical history), or in retaliation for participation in a protected activity.
