Employment Discrimination Survey
November/December 1998

We are asking employees to fill out this survey because several University of Florida employees tell us of their experiences with discrimination based on race and being mothers. We want to document how large these problems are so we can work to change them. The Anti-Discrimination Coalition, which includes several campus and community groups, was formed to expose and end discrimination based on sex and/or race, and to enforce worker's rights in our community. Feel free to attach a separate piece of paper and go into as much or as little detail as you would like.
