Statement of Standard
Skills for Change believes that every person has the right to learn, work and live in a society that treats individuals with respect and dignity. We also believe that we must take an active role in eliminating discrimination. This will be achieved in two ways:
- by ensuring that our organization’s work is carried out in a way that is free from discrimination and promotes fundamental respect for all people;
- by advocating for systemic and social change.
Harassment and discrimination based on gender, sexual orientation, race, ancestry, place of origin, ethnic origin, citizenship, colour, creed, age, marital status, family status or disability is defined in the Human Rights Code as against the law and will not be tolerated.
Failure to comply with Human Rights legislation will not be tolerated under any circumstances, and can lead to disciplinary action, up to and including immediate discharge.
The purpose of this Anti-Discrimination Policy is to promote a discrimination-free environment at Skills for Change by:
- encouraging, developing and enforcing appropriate discrimination-free values, attitudes and behaviours among all Board members, staff, volunteers and clients of the agency.
- integrating anti-discriminatory principles into all services to the community.
Application and Scope
This policy applies to everyone associated with Skills for Change including: employees, clients, volunteers, members of the Board of Directors and committee members, instructors and other people who use our space.
