How we honor our commitment


Equal Employment Opportunities

To provide equal employment and advancement opportunities, all recruiting, hiring, job assignment, compensation, promotion, discipline, termination, benefits, training, and other employment-related decisions are made on a nondiscriminatory basis.


Zero Tolerance for Discrimination – Workplace Harassment and Discrimination Prevention Policy

NIMJN does not tolerate harassment based on race, caste, color, religion, gender, national origin, ancestry, disability, age, gender identity or gender expression, sexual orientation, physical or mental disability, marital/family status, pregnancy, childbirth or related conditions, genetic information, and/or any other factors prohibited by federal, provincial, and local legislation. Any reported incidents will be investigated promptly, impartially, and thoroughly, with full confidentiality afforded to the party who made the complaint in good faith.



We make sure that all the affected populations, including underrepresented groups (i.e. women, LGBTIQ+, Dalits, and other minorities) can access assistance and benefits from employment, fellowship, consultant, and internship opportunities, as well as any humanitarian and development interventions, on an equal basis with others.


Gender Equity

We pledge to recognize and eliminate the obstacles, prejudice, and oppression that prevents people who identify as women or as members of the LGBTQ+ community from participating fully and fairly in the programs and opportunities at NIMJN, while also taking intersectionality into account.
