Invitation to Update Information in HR/Pay
KU is committed to assuring equal opportunity in employment for all people, and across this institution we aspire to acknowledge the many contributions of our employees with disabilities.
As a state university and federal contractor, KU is required to annually report race, ethnicity, disability and veteran data of our workforce and employee searches. The federal government defines disabilities as covering a variety of conditions and illnesses that can limit major life activities — including cancer, diabetes, PTSD, and depression.
All KU employees are invited to self-identify or update previous disclosures in the Personal Information section after logging into HR/Pay. It only takes a moment. Your participation and information will remain confidential. Neither your supervisor nor your department have access to this confidential information.
The information you provide will:
- help Human Resource Management provide the federally required numerical data,
- help us measure how we are doing in our current diversity and accessibility initiatives — such as lunchtime equity and inclusion discussions
- further empower KU employees with disabilities to seek accommodations
- guide investments that bring new programming to campus, like the recent Axis Dance Company performance.
Inclusion at KU starts with you. For more information regarding the importance of self-disclosure, I encourage you to watch a short video. If you are uncertain about what is considered a disability, please visit the HRM website to review the federal government’s definitions.
