WCA Equality Policy

The WCA aims to ensure that all people, irrespective of their age, gender, disability, race, religion, ethnic origin, colour, social status or sexual orientation, have genuinely equal opportunities to participate in paddlesport at all levels and in all roles. This includes participants, supporters, coaches, officials, volunteers, job applicants and employees.

The WCA recognises that discrimination is unacceptable and will not tolerate direct or indirect discrimination.

In pursuance of the equity policy the WCA will take, or support, positive action to eliminate individual and institutional discrimination:

  • To comply with its legal obligations

  • In favour of any group that is under represented in its membership, the sport as a whole or its workforce

  • To work towards the equitable provision of its services to all sections of the community

  • To avoid disadvantaging any person by conditions or requirements that cannot reasonably be justified

  • To embed Equal Opportunities into all WCA Policies, plans and strategies
