It expresses our commitment not to discriminate on the grounds of age, disability, gender, gender reassignment, marital status (including civil partnerships), race, ethnic origin, colour, nationality, national origin, religion or belief, or sexual orientation.
This policy applies to our volunteers and to people working in a podcasting host and facilitator of online events capacity.
All people who represent This is HCD, whether part-time, full-time or temporary, will be treated fairly and with respect. Selection for employment, whether as a member of staff or on a freelance basis, will be on the basis of aptitude and ability.
Access to opportunities for promotion, training or any other benefit will also be on the basis of aptitude and ability. All volunteers will be encouraged to develop their full potential and the talents and resources of the workforce will be fully utilised to maximise the creativity and success of the community.
/ Actively seek to increase the number of people we work with (interview and guest with) who are from groups/communities that are under-represented in the design and change-making space as a whole, or in particular job roles in the industry.
/ Ensure reasonable adjustments are made to enable access by all to our content that are reflective of an inclusive society.
