Equality and Diversity
RIBI is committed to promoting fairness and respect.
We aim to create an environment where diversity is recognised, valued and celebrated.
We will provide opportunities for all Rotarians to develop and to fulfil their potential. We will engage fully with our diverse society.
We will take care to assess the impact of our policies and their implementation on race, religion and belief, gender, gender realignment, disability, sexual orientation, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity and age equality.
These are the Protected Characteristics contained in the Equality Act 2010, and they also correspond broadly with the headings under which citizens are legally protected from discrimination in employment and other aspects of participation in society in equality legislation in the Republic of Ireland, namely the Equal Status Act 2000 as amended by the Equality Act 2004."
Below is a video produced by RIBI to help clubs to understand the policy
