Athletics NI is committed to the creation of an inclusive culture which enables individual achievement, elite success and a vibrant and sustainable sport that can captivate both existing and new audiences. Athletics NI is fully committed to the principles of equal opportunity and is responsible for ensuring that no job applicant, employee, volunteer or member receives less favourable treatment on the grounds of:
|Ethnicity or Nationality||Sexual Orientation|
|Political belief||Parental or Marital Status|
|Religious Belief||Class or Social Background|
We are opposed to all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination. All job applicants, employees and others who work for us will be treated fairly and will not be discriminated against on any of the above grounds.
Decisions about recruitment and selection, promotion, training or any other benefit will be made objectively and without unlawful discrimination. We recognise that the provision of equal opportunities in the workplace is not only good management practice, but it also makes sound business sense. Our equal opportunities policy will help all those who work for us to develop their full potential and the talents and resources of the workforce will be utilised fully to maximise the efficiency of the organisation.
Athletics NI is very proud to be one of 10 Governing Bodies within Northern Ireland to have achieved the Disability Sport NI Inclusive Sport Award. This award recognises governing bodies of sport who make a commitment to creating an inclusive sports environment for people with disabilities.
