Equality Policy

Guernsey Triathlon  is committed to the promotion of equality, inclusion, diversity and

fair treatment in all its functions.


Guernsey Triathlon does not tolerate discrimination, harassment or victimisation on the

grounds of sex, race, disability, age, religious or political belief (including lack of belief), sexual

orientation, marriage or civil partnership status, pregnancy or maternity, gender reassignment or

social background.

We will therefore:

• Provide a welcoming environment for participants and visitors from all sections of the

community, regardless of background or ability

• Commit to taking steps to develop a culture which prevents individuals, including members,

officials, coaches, volunteers, staff, athletes or supporters being discriminated against on

the grounds listed above

• Tackle any incidents of discrimination, harassment or victimisation that are brought to

Guernsey Triathlons attention

• Comply with our legal and moral obligations to eliminate discrimination, harassment and

victimisation, and to improve equality in triathlon

• Investigate through our disciplinary process (in line with British Triathlon) complaints of

discrimination or misconduct relating to alleged breaches of this equality policy. Where

these are upheld, we will impose appropriate sanctions, which might include expulsion

and/or referral to other agencies where appropriate

• Pay due regard to the promotion of equality, diversity and fair treatment during the

development and delivery of policies, procedures and actions

• Recognise and encourage diversity, inclusion and respect in our volunteers, or to

those who have roles within Guernsey Triathlon ensuring that we are equitable in our

work with them

• Regularly review our recruitment policy to ensure that it pays due regard to equality

• Take steps wherever possible to increase the proportion of participants (including athletes,

members, officials, coaches and volunteers) from under-represented groups, including

through the use of positive action where appropriate

• Nominate a responsible person for overseeing, implementing and monitoring an equality

policy with Guernsey Triathlon, ensuring members are aware of this point of

contact in case of any concerns that the policy has been breached

• Review the policy in line with any legislation change or after every 3 years
