EQUALITY AND DIVERSITY POLICY
World Federation for Neurorehabilitation (WFNR) is committed to the establishment and development of equality of opportunities in policy and practice.
WFNR will apply this policy and practice in all aspects of staff and members’ association with WFNR, from recruitment and election through to cessation of employment and term of office.
WFNR will apply this policy and practice in all aspects of its relationships whether as members or otherwise, including application procedures for membership, access to services and participation in activities.
WFNR will ensure that no individual or group within WFNR is discriminated against because of a `protected characteristic’. The Equality Act defines the protected characteristics as being age, disability, sex, gender reassignment, pregnancy, maternity, race (which includes colour, nationality, caste and ethnic or national origins), sexual orientation, religion or belief, or because someone is married or in a civil partnership.
WFNR will ensure that no employee, member or applicant is discriminated against through a condition or requirement of a job or position which cannot be objectively justified. WFNR shall value individuals and organisations for their contribution and shall give them the opportunity to realise their full potential within WFNR in so far as this contributes towards the fulfilment of its mission.
WFNR will ensure that all Board members, staff, members and volunteers abide by the content and spirit of this statement.
WFNR is committed to a programme of action to make this policy fully effective and will constantly monitor and review the procedures, practices and guidelines that underpin it.
