Leadable Diversity & Inclusion Policy
Leadable is committed to workplace diversity as well as fostering and advancing a culture of inclusion within our policies and procedures. Our goal is to effectuate our support for equal opportunity, nondiscrimination and diversity & inclusion while opposing all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination on the grounds of: colour, race, nationality, ethnic origin, sex, pregnancy, disability, marital or civil partnership status, age, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, socio-economic status, or whether the individual is a temporary, part-time or full-time employee.
We aim for our workforce to be truly representative of all sections of society, and for each team member to feel respected and to give it their best. As a fully remote company, we are fortunate enough to not be limited to a traditional recruitment pool. By being able to attract, develop, and retain team members, we can maintain a diverse workforce with a variety of skills and perspectives we can leverage to promote further innovation within the company.
Team member responsibilities:
Every team member has a responsibility to maintain and promote diversity and inclusion within the workplace. It is expected that team members:
- Promote respect and dignity for all people.
- Foster an inclusive environment that is free from discrimination, harassment, and bullying.
- Be aware of company-wide diversity & inclusion policies. Be aware of any potential unconscious bias and how it can negatively impact our ability to collaborate effectively.
Leadable’s diversity & inclusion policy is enforced and monitored by our department heads and executives. Their responsibilities in this field include but are not limited to:
- Ensuring that recruitment decisions are based solely on merit.
- Consciously and proactively engaging in measures to promote diversity and inclusion in the workplace.
- Ensuring that team members can safely and anonymously report any breaches of policy.
- Provide reasonable accommodations for people with disabilities and/ or underrepresented groups. ‘Reasonable accommodations’ are subject to circumstance and as such are to be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
- Ensuring that job postings are widely spread in order to target a larger pool of candidates.
- Recognising and mitigating any unconscious bias within the organisation.
- Addressing breaches in policy and any behaviour that is inconsistent with Leadable’s values.
Leadable takes allegations of discrimination, harassment and bullying very seriously and we ensure that all cases are reviewed fully and appropriately. We encourage that any and all instances of a breach of this policy be submitted to any department head or member of upper management, either orally or in writing. Allegations relating to breaches of this policy will always be treated in confidence. Reports submitted in good faith will not result in the team member being treated less favourably or victimised. Reports submitted in bad faith such as allegations which are found to be false will be dealt with in accordance with our disciplinary procedures.
Any threats or acts of retaliation against other team member(s) because they submitted a report relating to a policy violation will not be tolerated.
Team members who are found to be in breach of this policy are subject to appropriate disciplinary action. Such behaviour may constitute gross misconduct and may result in termination.
