Equality, Diversity and Inclusion
The Association for Clinical Biochemistry and Laboratory Medicine (the ACB) is an inclusive organisation committed to fostering a culture where individual differences and diversity are welcomed and eliminating discrimination. Our aim is that our members and staff feel respected, engaged, able to give their best and be representative of all sections of society.
To that end we commit to and comply with the equality act 2010 and other relevant legislation: providing equality and fairness for all members, employees and stakeholders, or those applying to be such; not discriminating on grounds of race, national origin, religion, belief, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, age, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy, maternity or paternity. We oppose all forms of unlawful or unfair discrimination.
We recognise each person is an individual with visible and non-visible differences, celebrating and valuing these differences and by doing so ensuring we treat all members and staff fairly, with respect and value all for their contributions.
We commit to proactively foster an environment where diversity is valued, barriers to participation eliminated and everyone feels they belong and are able to contribute to their fullest potential.
We recognise inclusion goes beyond the consideration of legally protected characteristics and in an organisation representing Clinical Science we will welcome, respect, listen and use the different perspectives and ideas that every one of our members brings to the ACB.
This statement will inform the way we discharge our responsibilities, perform our duties and make our decisions.
