EQUITY, DIVERSITY AND INCLUSION
Our intention is to provide a platform and create a space for all women in business on the Sunshine Coast to feel welcome and empowered. We will celebrate women in business, provide education opportunities, foster networking opportunities and advocate on behalf of women in business.
In line with our purpose, we encourage all who wish to celebrate and empower women in business, to join us and feel welcome as we invite, respect and value social, cultural and linguistic diversity. In doing this we are dedicated to ensuring all who interact with the SCBWN are treated with respect and dignity, within a safe and supportive environment.
We understand diversity to mean the amalgam of diverse social, cultural, economic, physical and religious needs of persons based on:
- Indigenous identity, race, colour, descent, national or ethnic origin, ethno-religious background;
- marital status;
- sexual preference;
- transgender status;
- family responsibilities;
- carers’ responsibilities;
- pregnancy or potential pregnancy;
- political conviction; and
- religious belief.
We value and celebrate diversity, seek equal opportunity, inclusive practice and social safety for all people in our pursuit to empower and celebrate women in business.
