Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Policy

EQUALITY, DIVERSITY & INCLUSION POLICY

Policy Statement 

Saracens Group recognises that providing equality of opportunity, valuing diversity, and promoting a culture of inclusion are vital to our success both on and off the pitch/court.

Saracens abhors all forms of unlawful and unfair discrimination.  We are a family who support each other and respect each other’s beliefs. We aim to create an environment which values individuals equally, and where people can be free to be themselves. 

Saracens does not disadvantage individuals by discriminating on any grounds including, but not limited to, age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion and belief, sex (gender), and sexual orientation.

This policy seeks to ensure those involved with Saracens maximise their potential and embrace a broad range of people (no one is excluded). Most importantly it underpins our belief that we are all different, want different things, react differently to the same situation, and possess different strengths. As such we need to be treated as individuals with respect and without assumption. 

We are committed to challenging discrimination in all its forms and will support our leaders, managers, players, supporters, partners, staff, and the wider Saracens family in demonstrating this commitment in their everyday activities.  

Scope

This policy applies to the Saracens Group and those associated organisations that carry the Saracens brand, such as the Saracens Foundation and Saracens Multi-Academy Trust. Within those organisations the policy applies to employees, players, volunteers/workers, supporters, external partners, contractors, people who use our services and/or facilities and the Saracens Board.

All these groups have a personal responsibility to be aware of the content of this policy and to abide by it at all times.

Policy Commitment

Saracens values of Hard work, Honesty, Discipline and Humility unite our organisation and define how we behave and how we interact with each other, and they guide how we make decisions.

Saracens is dedicated to encouraging a supportive and inclusive culture across all levels of the club through the promotion of diversity and inclusion and ensuring the elimination of discrimination in the workplace and across all strands of our organisation.

There will be no discrimination in our recruitment, selection, promotion, transfer, training & development, discipline, and dismissal processes, nor when considering pay and benefits, terms & conditions and/or flexible working arrangements.

All decisions in these areas will be based on individual circumstance, aptitude and ability or merit as appropriate to the area.

We will have a zero-tolerance approach to the elimination of discrimination, harassment, and bullying, such as gaslighting and mobbing. As such we will not tolerate any form of these across the Saracens Group and those organisation’s that carry the Saracens brand; from any employee, player, volunteer/worker, supporter, external partner, contractor, people who use our service and/or facilities or Board member and will impose sanctions on those that breach this policy. (See Annex A for detailed areas of law)

We aim to ensure that our organisation is representative of all sections of society. Each employee will be respected and valued and able to give their best as a result.

We aim to create a working environment in which individual differences and the contributions of all team members are recognised and valued and the environment promotes dignity and respect.

The overriding objective of this Policy is to make our position on equality, diversity & inclusion clear. By doing so, we are signaling our commitment to make a stand to eradicate discrimination in all forms, including racial discrimination and discrimination toward Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (including those who identify as non-binary), and Intersex (LGBTI) people.

We take any breaches of this policy seriously and would encourage anyone who feels they have been subject to discrimination, harassment or bullying to raise their concerns without any fear so we can act to sanction and eradicate such behaviour. 

Our aim is to also influence the sectors and communities we work in through demonstrating our commitment and consistent practice in these areas and working with other likeminded organisation’s on the furtherance of equality, diversity, and inclusion (EDI).

Saracens Group is committed to the Rugby Against Racism campaign and commits to making English professional club rugby and the professional sport and entertainment sector a more diverse, welcoming, and inclusive environment for our staff, players, fans, and clients while also supporting societal change.

Work and Influence in The Community

Saracens is committed to use its brand, networks, and resources to make a positive impact within the communities that the club operates, particularly targeting people who are disadvantaged or marginalised within society.

The Saracens Foundation is the charitable arm of Saracens Rugby Club and has a vision to transform lives on and off the pitch to build stronger communities.

The charity works collaboratively to enhance the education, employability, and health of our communities, to build a stronger and more inclusive society for all.

The Foundation has an extensive and diverse reach providing programmes for individuals with disabilities, over 50s, girls and women, those from low-income families, those from ethnic minority backgrounds, those in the probation service, and numerous programmes that support pupils and teachers within the school system. Much of the Foundation’s work reflects a strong ethos of inclusion and a commitment to create greater equality of opportunity amongst the diverse communities in which Saracens operates.

The Saracens Multi-Academy Trust was set up by Saracens to further the educational aspirations and attainment of one of the most disadvantaged and challenging communities in North London, Colindale in the London Borough of Barnet. 

The Saracens High School opened in 2018 and is situated within the Grahame Park Estate in Colindale, a low socio-economic area with high levels of ethnic diversity.

The vision at Saracens High School is to spark a flame of inspiration in each and every pupil, whatever their interest or ambition, and to support them to become the person they want to be.

At the time of writing this policy the Saracens Multi-Academy Trust plans to open the Saracens Primary School in September 2024, to be located within one mile of the Saracens High School and therefore serving the same diverse community of Colindale.

Monitoring
We will monitor the make-up of our workforce regarding information such as age, sex (gender), ethnic background, sexual orientation, religion or belief and disability to encourage equality, diversity and inclusion and support meeting our aims and commitments within this policy.

All information will be requested on a voluntary basis and only used for the purposes of developing and monitoring EDI plans.

 

ANNEX A

THE LAW

The Equality Act 2010 consolidated, harmonised and expanded on existing discrimination law covering the areas of:

• Equal Pay; • Sex Discrimination; • Racial Discrimination; • Disability Discrimination;
• Human Rights; • Sexual Orientation; • Religion or Belief; and • Age Discrimination. 

The Equality Act defines the group of people protected from direct and indirect discrimination as those possessing ‘protected characteristics’. When participating in recruitment, selection, transfer, promotion, training, or dismissal it must be ensured that objective criteria, fairness, reasonableness, and openness are appropriately applied to all the groups defined as possessing protected characteristics:

Protected characteristics

These are:

  • age; • disability; • gender reassignment; • marriage and civil partnership;
    • pregnancy and maternity; • race; • religion or belief; • sex; and • sexual orientation.

Types of discrimination
The Equality Act 2010 defines direct discrimination, indirect discrimination, victimisation, and harassment.

Direct discrimination
Discrimination occurs if an employer discriminates against an employee because of a protected characteristic, or treats them less favourably, whether or not the employee possesses that characteristic (except in the case of marital status or civil partnership).

It is unlawful to discriminate against employees because of their connection with someone else who possesses a protected characteristic, or because they are mistakenly perceived to possess a protected characteristic. This is called discrimination by association or perception.

Indirect discrimination

Unjustified indirect discrimination is unlawful in relation to most protected characteristics. The Equality Act extended coverage to include gender re-assignment and disability (but not to pregnancy and maternity). Indirect discrimination can occur when a condition, rule, policy or practice is applied to everyone, but particularly disadvantages people who share protected characteristics. Indirect discrimination can in certain circumstances be justified for proportionate means of achieving legitimate business aims, however this must be achieved fairly and with due consideration to protected groups, and alternatives to this business need must be considered carefully first.

Harassment

Harassment is unwanted conduct related to a relevant protected characteristic which has the purpose or effect of violating an individual’s dignity or creating an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment for that individual.  Harassment applies to all protected characteristics except for pregnancy and maternity and marriage and civil partnerships.  Employees can complain of any behaviour that they find offensive even if it is not directed at them, and the complainant need not possess the relevant characteristic themselves.  Employees are also protected from harassment because of perception and association (as laid out under Direct Discrimination).

Further, sexual harassment may amount to both an employment rights matter and a criminal matter, such as in sexual assault allegations. In addition, harassment under the Protection from Harassment Act 1997 – which is not limited to circumstances where harassment relates to a protected characteristic – is a criminal offence.

Third Party Harassment

Employers can be held liable for the harassment of their employees by a third party (for example, someone outside their organisation). The Act extended liability for third-party harassment to all protected characteristics (other than pregnancy/maternity and marriage/civil partnerships) where the employer has failed to take reasonable steps to prevent it, and provided the employer knows that the employee has experienced third-party harassment on at least two prior occasions.

Victimisation

Victimisation occurs when an employee is treated less favourably because they have made or supported a complaint in good faith or raised a grievance under the terms of the Equality Act or because they are suspected of doing so. (See also Bullying and Harassment, Confidentiality and Whistle-blowers Policy). Victimisation can also occur when someone feels they are being discriminated against because of a protected characteristic they hold.

Detriment arising from disability
This occurs when employers treat employees in a detrimental way because of something that is a consequence of their disability. A typical example would be dismissing employees with poor attendance records when their absences were caused by disability. This would be unlawful unless dismissal could be justified as a “proportionate means of achieving a legitimate aim” or the employer could not reasonably have been expected to know of the disability. People with disabilities who are recruited, or who become disabled during employment must be assessed and provided with reasonable adjustments for the employee to carry out their day-to-day duties.  If in doubt about this process, please contact Human Resources.

Other elements of the Equality Act 2010:

Employment Health Questionnaires

Employers must not ask health related questions before an applicant has been offered the job or been successful at interview. Up to this point, health related questions can only be asked for the reason of finding out what reasonable adjustments that person might need during the recruitment process or deciding whether the applicant can carry out an essential requirement of the job.  Employers can however ask about disability for the purpose of providing diversity monitoring or to take positive action.  Once a person has been successful at interview, then an Employment Health Questionnaire may be sent to them. 

Instructions/Pressure to Discriminate

It is unlawful for a person who has authority over another person to instruct that person to act unlawfully within the Acts.  That no unlawful act may occur as a consequence of the person’s action does not matter, it was the original instruction or pressure that is unlawful.  It should be noted however, that the liable person will not necessarily only be the one giving instructions/pressure, as carrying out the act is also deemed unlawful.

Partners

On the evening of Wednesday 11th May, a host of Saracens Womens players will be descending on StoneX Stadium to take on the role of coach and give young players from the community the chance to learn from the very best.

The session is open to all players aged U11 – U18 and will provide an opportunity to work with players on a number of skill stations alongside Saracens’ award winning community coaches and high-profile Saracens players under the floodlights of StoneX Stadium on the 4G pitch!

The session will allow young players to train in a fun and enjoyable environment developing individual concepts such as catch & pass, evasion and game play.

The coaching session will be followed by an opportunity to collect autographs and mingle with the players responsible for some of the most expansive and entertaining rugby in the Allianz Premiership 15s.

OVERVIEW

The Saracens Players Coaching Event is Saracens’ most immersive coaching experience. The programme, following on from the mens event which is now in its eighth season, will look to provide a similar experience in this first event of its kind for the Womens Team at the club.

Saracens profile players are able to attend these evenings to pass on their expert coaching tips to young players across the community. The Saracens players will instil some of the values that drive them, urging young talent to work hard; play with honesty, humility and discipline whilst working together as a team.

Each child will receive their very own limited edition t-shirt to train in and the evening will conclude with an opportunity to collect autographs plus have photos taken with some of the biggest names in the Gallagher Premiership, most of whom are often unable to attend our traditional rugby camps programme.

SARACENS RESIDENTIAL RUGBY CAMP, FEATURING A DAY TRAINING WITH THE PROS

Come and experience the life of a professional rugby player on our residential camp. For four days and three nights you will eat, sleep, train, recover and abide by the Core Values in the same way as the Saracens first team do daily.

Throughout your time with some of our top coaches you will work on differing skills that will make you a more rounded player and give you the ability to view the game from different perspectives on the pitch. You will develop skills in leadership, decision making and goal setting as well as creating a game plan that will suit the players around you, culminating in playing a match at StoneX Stadium on the last day with your families invited to be there to watch.  

A day with the pros early in the week will see players experiencing training alongside the professional players in the morning, learning directly from the likes of Maro Itoje, Jamie George and club captain Owen Farrell (players subject to injuries and enforced international leave). After lunch the players will have the opportunity to watch the first team train and ask questions of the management to explore reasoning behind certain activities and improve depth of knowledge that they can take away to their own clubs. There will be an opportunity then for pictures, autographs and questions when the session has finished.

Outside of training the players will learn more about nutrition, the best ways to recover after rugby activity and what work is done away from the pitch in terms of preparation and analysis, all of which will help players achieve their goals set out with coaches throughout the camp.

Our coaches will each bring a range of skills all specialising in different areas of the game. Their knowledge will enable players to work on position specific skills, as well as giving them the opportunity to learn something new, including kicking, scrummaging and passing as well as the contact areas of the game.

Whilst at a Saracens Rugby Camp children will strive to adhere to our core values:

Discipline

We understand our role within the team and commit to be the best that we can be.

Honesty

We are honest with our self and help create a safe environment where others can give and receive honest feedback.

Work Rate

We work together as a team and always give 100%.

Humility

We are good losers as well as good winners and we treat everyone with respect.

There is both on-street and off-street cycle parking provided in the local area around the stadium.

TRAVELLING BY CAR

No parking
There is no parking available for general admission fans at the stadium.

The road closures also mean that, if you choose to travel by car, you will not be able to exit any car parking facility within the road closure area for one hour after the final whistle.
