Equality & Diversity Statement

SoSkAn is strongly committed to equality and diversity for all sectors of the community, and to ensuring that equality is incorporated into all aspects of the Association’s development.

Our hobby is intrinsically entwined with American history, re-enacting a period of history where certain types of discriminatory behaviour were considered acceptable social norms. However, this must not be reflected in member’s general demeanour and attitudes, and the Association will deal vigorously with any incidents which breach this policy, in accordance with its disciplinary procedures.

SoSkAn intends to ensure that all members, families, clients and members of the public are treated with equity and respect, regardless of their age, gender, sexual orientation, marital status, social/economic status, race, ethnicity, religious affiliation or disability.

SoSkAn is committed to everyone having the right to enjoy their re-enacting hobby in an environment free from intimidation, harassment or abuse. All members have the responsibility to oppose discriminatory behaviour and language, and foster a culture that enhances the contribution of all members to the positive vision of the Association.
