The Chapter will also consider transgender/ gender non- confirming/ gender diverse community, sexual orientation, Indigenous community, those with varying migration status, young people, individuals with different abilities/ disabilites, Veterans, and people with varying cognitive and behavioral health conditions, as part of its affirmative action goals.
