Workplace Foundation positively promotes equality, diversity and inclusion and does not just avoid discrimination. We strive to develop a safe workplace where harassment and discrimination are challenged and eliminated so that everyone is treated equally, fairly and supported to realise their full potential. 


We want to contribute to the advancement of equality, diversity and inclusion, bringing this to the heart of our activity. We will carry out reasonable adjustments where possible in our work that will enable a more inclusive environment that is accessible for all.


We want to:


  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation and other conduct prohibited by the Equality Act 2010
  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not
  • Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not

When we use the term ‘under-represented artists’ we are referring to those who are commercially under-represented.


We will continually update our accessibility in order to better our organisation.
