2. Aims and understanding
The Sign Dance Group recognizes that we live in a society where discrimination still operates to the disadvantage of many groups in society. We understand discrimination to be a process of acting unfairly against an individual or group by exclusion, verbal comment, denigration, failure to appreciate needs or the assumption of such needs without consultation.
The SDC Group is committed to a policy of equal opportunities that informs and guides all aspects of our work and seeks to enshrine equality of opportunity all staff (existing and prospective), contractors, artists, workshop participants and partners into our working practices.
The aim of this policy is to ensure no one experiences less favourable treatment or lack of opportunities and to make certain that no person or group is disadvantaged.
3. Implementation and practices
This Policy applies to casting, recruitment, training, pay, conditions of work and every aspect of employment.
All members of staff, artists, contractors, practitioners, workshop participants and workshop leaders will be treated fairly and will not be discriminated against on any of the above grounds, or any other grounds which cannot be shown to be justifiable within the context of this policy.
We shall promote a positive and harmonious working environment in which all people are treated with respect, and where occurrences of unlawful direct and indirect discrimination, harassment and victimization are prevented and challenged
