Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) support the range and breadth of our work. They encourage us to be open to other cultures, to challenge our assumptions, biases and prejudices. They are essential for deep, trusting, mutually beneficial relationships. We want everyone coming into contact with us to feel respected and treated with dignity. We want alignment between what we say and what we do. We will seek to nurture a sense of belonging for those we employ and encourage an environment where people feel comfortable being themselves at work. Surface Area Dance Theatre is recognised by the Department of Work and Pensions as a Disability Leader and champion for Disability Confidence within our local and business communities. We believe therefore that it is important to value everyone and to be empathetic, fair, respectful and inclusive. This holds for employees, participants in, or contributors to our work, irrespective of background, characteristics or attributes.
