Equal Opportunity Employer

In an American newspaper, about half the classified advertisements carry the heading "Equal Opportunity Employer"—that is, these individuals or organizations have a policy to employ applicants regardless of race, color, national origin, religion, or sex for positions with equal pay and advancement opportunities. Even church organizations, such as The First Church of Christ, Scientist, in Boston, have such a policy with certain recognized religious exceptions.

This indicates that humanitarian efforts are being made by these individuals and organizations to give everyone an opportunity to prove his ability to do effective work, and to restore justice and confidence to those individuals who have been denied their rightful opportunities. An EO employer strives to provide work and remuneration impartially, fairly, and justly. Human belief in all its forms, however, implies dualism, a combination of good and evil, and this dualism, accepted as inherent in human nature, provides a foundation for confusion, conflict, and fear.
