At Yourkids, we are committed to fostering an environment that embraces and values the diversity of all individuals, including those who identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and all other gender and sexual orientations (LGBTQI+). We recognise that our collective strength and success are deeply rooted in the unique perspectives and experiences of every member of our community.
We are dedicated to creating and maintaining a safe, inclusive, and equitable space for all, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or expression. We strive to provide an atmosphere where everyone can bring their authentic selves to work, learn, and collaborate.
To ensure the continued progress of LGBTQI+ inclusivity, Yourkids pledges to:
- Foster a culture of respect, empathy, and understanding by promoting awareness and education on LGBTQI+ issues, history, and experiences.
- Implement policies that prohibit discrimination and harassment based on sexual orientation, gender identity, or expression, and ensure that these policies are enforced fairly and consistently.
- Provide resources and support for LGBTQI+ employees, students, or members, including access to healthcare, mental health services, and affinity groups.
- Actively seek out and collaborate with organisations and individuals who share our commitment to LGBTQI+ inclusivity and equality.
- Continuously review and update our policies, procedures, and practices to ensure they remain relevant and responsive to the needs of our LGBTQI+ community.
We acknowledge that our work in this area is an ongoing process, and we are dedicated to listening, learning, and adapting as we strive for a more inclusive and supportive environment for all. Together, we will work to break down barriers, challenge stereotypes, and create a space where everyone can thrive, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity, or expression.
