We aim to ensure that every employee and job applicant is treated fairly and has equal opportunities. We are opposed to all forms of discrimination and we are committed to never providing less favourable facilities or treatment because of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, ethnic origin, nationality, national origin, religion or belief, or sex and sexual orientation (together known as the protected characteristics). We are opposed to all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination.
Diversity is about recognising, respecting and valuing different experiences, viewpoints, cultures, lifestyles and approaches based on membership of groups who share protected characteristics.
We will treat all our people, whether full time, part time, temporary staff or volunteers, fairly and with respect. When we select a person for employment, promotion, training or any other benefit, it will be on the basis of their skills and ability.

We have two Board Champions to lead on equality, whose role it is to challenge staff and the board specifically around diversity and equality. However, it is the responsibility of all board members to consider diversity and equality when taking and leading action.
We currently have a skilled and wide-ranging board consistent with the Code for Sports Governance.
