EQUALITY AND DIVERSITY POLICY 

 

TiggerTraining/Mind the Gap is dedicated to encouraging a supportive and inclusive culture amongst all who we interact with. It is within our best interest to promote diversity and eliminate discrimination in the workplace and to act in accordance with the Equality Act 2010.

 

Our aim is to ensure that all individuals are given equal opportunity and that our organisation is representative of all sections of society. Each individual we interact with will be respected and valued and able to give their best as a result.

 

This policy reinforces our commitment to providing equality and fairness to all in our interactions and not provide less favourable facilities or treatment on the grounds of Neurotype, age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, ethnic origin, colour, nationality, national origin, religion or belief, or sex and sexual orientation. We are opposed to all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination.

 

All a consultant and trainer, every individual will be treated fairly and with respect.

All individuals will be given help and encouragement to develop their full potential and utilise their unique talents. Therefore, the skills and resources of our organisation will be fully utilised, and we will maximise the efficiency of our whole workforce.
