URC is proud to be an Equal Opportunity and Affirmative Action employer. We value, seek, and promote diversity in our workforce and base all employment decisions on merit and business needs in observance of our non-discrimination and non-retaliation policies at all times.
Our successes and strengths are from the contributions of motivated passionate highly skilled and experienced teams celebrating and representing voices and backgrounds from all races, color, religious creed and beliefs, national origin, ancestry, age, disability or handicap, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity, marital or familial status, genetic information, veteran status, ethnicity, or any other characteristics.
Our culture of diversity and inclusion applies to all aspects of employment, including recruitment, hiring, training and development, promotion, transfer, termination, layoff, compensation, benefits, social and recreational programs, and all other conditions of employment complying with all applicable federal, state, and local laws.
URC extends its commitment to empowerment and protection of historically vulnerable and marginalized individuals and communities in an environment free from, and constantly aim to prevent, any form of unwanted/unwelcomed behavior, harassment and/or abuses. All our employees and other representatives of the organization are expected to share and embrace this commitment without reservations.
Additionally, URC will not discharge or in any other manner discriminate against employees or applicants because they have inquired about, discussed, or disclosed their own pay or the pay of another employee or applicant. However, employees who have access to the compensation information of other employees or applicants as a part of their essential job functions cannot disclose the pay of other employees or applicants to individuals who do not otherwise have access to compensation information, unless the disclosure is (a) in response to a formal complaint or charge, (b) in furtherance of an investigation, proceeding, hearing, or action, including an investigation conducted by the employer, or (c) consistent with the contractor’s legal duty to furnish information. 41 CFR 60-1.35(c).
Please contact us immediately or via our confidential and secure Ethics Hotline if you observed and/or experienced any infringements or breaches to any of URC’s commitments above at any time. All reports will remain private and confidential accordingly.

URC and the Guiding Principles on Preventing Misconduct in the Workplace
URC is a proud signatory of the Guiding Principles on Preventing Harassment, Exploitation and Abuse by International Development Companies, prepared by the Coalition of International Development Companies (CIDC) of the Professional Services Council (PSC). PSC is a membership organization of nearly 400 companies that provide federal agencies with services. CIDC is comprised of PSC members who focus on work for the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), the State Department, the U.S. President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR), the Millennium Challenge Corporation, and other organizations.
URC, along with 34 other signatories, believes that our employees and the people we serve must feel safe, protected, and respected in the workplace. The guiding principles confirm our commitment to ensure that we provide clear policies to prevent all forms of misconduct and clear procedures to prevent, detect, report, and resolve allegations of harassment, exploitation, and abuse. The guiding principles follow action by former USAID Administrator Mark Green to form an Action Alliance for Preventing Sexual Misconduct and conduct an internal review of USAID’s policies in this area.
