I'm opening a game development business and I have a page on my web-site with open vacancies.
On the page I had a statement that basically says that we don't discriminate people by race, nationality, handicaps, sex, age, sexual orientation or religious belief etc. At the time I thought it's a great statement to show how progressive and humane the company is.
But when I asked a few of my friends about it they said it's too much and I shouldn't write anything like that or point attention to that because people would get offended.
Is it really offensive to point out that information and just let it be an unwritten rule? Would you feel offended if you'd see that statement on the "Jobs" page of a company?
