Anti-Discrimination Policy

The Wayward Artist is deeply committed to maintaining a work environment that is devoid of harassment. Any form of harassment based on an individual's sex, race, ethnicity, national origin, age, religion, or any other legally protected characteristic will not be tolerated. It is imperative that all volunteers, contractors, and employees, including supervisors and management personnel, strictly adhere to and uphold this policy. No individual will face any adverse consequences in their employment with the employer for raising good faith complaints of unlawful harassment.


Sexual harassment encompasses unwelcome and offensive behavior of a sexual nature directed at a particular individual or group. Instances of harassing conduct may include unwanted physical contact, the use of vulgar language with a sexual connotation, sexual advances, sexually explicit jokes or comments, indecent gestures, and the sharing of pornographic or sexually explicit material in the form of images, drawings, or caricatures. Additionally, utilizing the employer's computer system to access, display, or distribute sexually suggestive content may also constitute harassment.


In the event that an employee believes they have been subjected to harassment based on their sex, race, national origin, ethnic background, sexual orientation, or any other legally protected characteristic, it is imperative that they promptly report the incident to the Managing Director of The Wayward Artist, Craig Holland at Upon receipt of the report, a dedicated committee comprised of select members of our management team and Board of Directors will expeditiously conduct an investigation, and appropriate corrective measures will be implemented as necessary. Every instance of unlawful harassment will be handled with the utmost discretion and confidentiality possible under the prevailing circumstances, and retaliation of any form is strictly prohibited.


The reporting procedure for incidents of harassing conduct is designed to supplement rather than replace or limit an employee's right to seek redress under applicable state or federal laws by promptly reaching out to:


State of California’s Civil Rights Department 

800-884-1684 (voice) 

800-700-2320 (TTY) or
California's Relay Service at 711


Federal Government Equal Employment Opportunity Commission

1-800-669-6820 (TTY for Deaf/Hard of Hearing callers only)

1-844-234-5122 (ASL Video Phone for Deaf/Hard of Hearing callers only)


Any employee, volunteer, or contractor found engaging in improper harassing behavior will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including the termination of employment or termination of the contract for services of an independent contractor.
