    When I read your title I immediately thought "exclusionary". It's the term commonly used for this.

There is 'cliquey':

Cliquey, the adjectival form of Clique:

1 - a small, exclusive group of people; coterie; set.



A group that closes themself off from outside influences will often be called "insular"


characteristic of an isolated people; especially : being, having, or reflecting a narrow provincial viewpoint

Though this might sound ill fitting, their examples show how it fits your needs:

Examples of insular

the insular world of boarding schools
an insular community that is not receptive of new ideas, especially from outsiders

The best choice is discriminatory: Marked by or showing prejudice, bias.

Your organization treats people in a very discriminatory manner.

  • +1. I'd accept this answer if I were the OP. Common service agreements would state that "discrimination" of any kind: including but not limited to religion, sex, race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, culture, caste or creed is strictly prohibited.
