Akvo non-discrimination policy

Back to all policies Updated: 16 July 2012

The Akvo Foundation is committed to promoting equality of opportunity for all staff and job applicants. We aim to create a working environment in which all individuals are able to make best use of their skills, free from discrimination or harassment, and in which decisions are based on merit.

We do not discriminate against staff on the basis of age, disability, political views, civil status, pregnancy or maternity, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, gender, gender ressignment or sexual orientation.

The principles of non-discrimination and equality of opportunity also apply to the way in which staff treat visitors, clients, customers, suppliers and former staff members.

Akvo seeks to support organisations that are substantially in line with our non-discrimination policy. Akvo may terminate its provision of services to organisations that are found to unlawfully discriminate through the use of those services and / or through their hiring practices.

All staff have a duty to act in accordance with this policy and treat colleagues with dignity at all times, and not to discriminate against or harass other members of staff, regardless of their status.
