Equality and Diversity Policy
StoryMagic is committed to promoting a supportive and inclusive culture for all of our freelancers, customers and learners. We aim to ensure that no job applicant, freelancer, customer or learner experiences less favourable treatment on the grounds of race, colour, nationality, religion, ethnic or national origin, age, gender reassignment or parental/marital status, sexual orientation or disability. By integrating individual strengths, we will maximise efficiency and creativity, and deliver greater customer service.
StoryMagic will work to ensure that freelancers are:
Treated fairly and without discrimination during their employment, commencing with the recruitment process and have access to promotions when available based on merit.
Able to work in a healthy and safe environment free from hazards.
Treated with dignity and respect in a fair and consistent manner in an environment where inappropriate behaviour is not acceptable.
Roles and responsibilities
StoryMagic is committed to promoting equality for all. If a freelancer or customer or learner feels they have been subject to discrimination they should raise this with a director.
All Freelancers have a responsibility to treat others with dignity and respect. If a freelancer is found to have acted in a deliberately discriminatory manner, appropriate disciplinary procedures will apply.
All freelancers, customers and learners will be informed that an equality and diversity policy is in operation and are bound to comply with its requirements. This policy will also be drawn to the attention of funding agencies, stakeholders and job applicants though appropriate communication channels.
It is expected that when freelancers are representing StoryMagic in an external capacity, and as part of their role, that they will endeavour to ensure that equality and diversity principles and practices are adhered to.
Monitoring and Evaluation
StoryMagic will regularly evaluate its services and the effectiveness of its equality and diversity policy.
Review of this Policy
StoryMagic’s commitment to equality and diversity is an active one. This document will be amended on a regular basis as part of this active commitment.
