It will not discriminate unlawfully or unfairly against people on the grounds of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage, civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation The Society endeavours to ensure that individuals are treated equally and fairly and that decisions on membership, volunteering, recruitment, selection, training, promotion and career management are based on objective, and job-related, criteria

All committee members, members, the President, Chairperson, Officers, volunteers and staff are bound by the policy of equal opportunities. They, the Society President, Chairperson, Committee and any advisors and agents of the Society will work actively to ensure a climate of equal opportunity is fostered and maintained.

Respect for Others

The Society requires the President, Chairperson, Officers, Committee members and members and any other peoples associated with Society events, publications or media, not to adopt a sexist, ageist, racist or sectarian attitude or language in their dealings with colleagues or the public. The Society will deal quickly and effectively with any alleged harassment - intentional or unintentional - and will invoke disciplinary procedures, and where necessary invite the appropriate external agency and/or UK law enforcement body to investigate any alleged criminal activity.
