EQUALITY & DIVERSITY
Lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) members
At Society Dance Academy we believe that all members should be able to be themselves without fear of discrimination.
No member within Society Dance Academy should be treated differently, or offered different opportunities, based on their sexual orientation.
Society Dance Academy is an inclusive organisation and we want to ensure that all achieve and get given the equal opportunity.
We recognise the huge impact Society Dance Academy can have on each young member and volunteer. And it’s vital that trans people can contribute their experiences, time, commitment and skills to our organisation.
Our volunteers and staff must make every effort to bring all our members together in a safe space where they can learn from each other and have a positive experience.
We will support our leaders, volunteers, young members and parents on a case-by-case basis to ensure a bespoke approach to including our trans members.
Balancing the needs and interests of different members is key to making Society Dance Academy an inclusive and safe space. We support our volunteers to lead and manage different situations where they need to uphold the requirements of our Equality and diversity policy, while balancing the interests of all our members.
