Leeds United Foundation is committed to upholding The Premier League Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Standards, (PLEDIS), values and expectations.
The Foundation is committed to promoting inclusion and eliminating discrimination both from football and within our business. We take a zero-tolerance approach to any form of discrimination or bullying based on the grounds of age, disability, gender reassignment, marital status or civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, and sexual orientation. These are known as the “protected characteristics” under the Equality Act 2010.
Leeds United Foundation will ensure that it treats its employees and participants fairly and with respect at all times. The Foundation is committed to providing an environment in which every individual’s rights, dignity and worth are respected and in particular that they are able to work and enjoy Foundation activities in an environment without the threat of intimidation, victimisation, harassment or abuse. It will also provide access and opportunities for all members of the community to take part in and enjoy its activities.
