Equality and diversity
Recognising and valuing diversity
St. Anne's is committed to promoting diversity and equality and combating unlawful and unfair discrimination, including harassment. Our policy is that everyone should be treated fairly and without discrimination in relation to their human rights regardless of race, ethnicity, gender, disability, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, age, domestic circumstances, working pattern, trade union activity, HIV status, religion, national or social origin. We recognise that to redress previous inequalities, positive action is required in some areas.
Our policies and procedures are designed to remove barriers to equality in all key areas of service provision and employment such as recruitment, training and remuneration and to ensure that decisions are objective, based on merit and support St. Anne’s goals. Furthermore, St Anne’s will work with all our stakeholders to eliminate processes, attitudes and behaviour that amount to discrimination which arise from prejudice, ignorance, thoughtlessness and stereotyping.
