While many organizations have all clients sign photo waivers as a matter of practice, there are many reasons why individuals do not want their photo taken ranging from bad hair days to cultural beliefs about photography. As part of the GPS’s commitment to respecting all cultures, I worked with leadership to create a policy requiring staff to create plans to 1) give people every opportunity possible to opt out of having their photo taken and 2) ensure individuals aren’t prevented from using services/attending events solely due to not wanting their photo taken.
