Scottish Rowing is committed to ensuring that equality is incorporated across all aspects of its operations.
In doing so we must accept that this is about fairness in sport and giving equal access to everyone in society and also giving them the right to enjoy their sport in an environment free from threat of intimidation, harassment and abuse. It is also important for everyone in Scottish Rowing to be responsible for opposing discriminatory behaviour and promoting equality of opportunity. If all the clubs, athletes and volunteers commit to this policy then it can only strengthen Scottish Rowing and help grow the sport.
The Scottish Rowing Equality Policy is a statement of the principles which we will endeavour to apply. Scottish Rowing is now working towards Interim status on the equality framework. As part of this we will be drawing up an Action Plan for improving our accessibility on a number of fronts.
Achieving equality is an ongoing process. A review of all Scottish Rowing policies will be undertaken over time to ensure that actual and potential rowers are not treated unfairly.
