My Inclusion Policy

My Goal

To create a safe and inclusive business that reflects the diversity of all of my clients and suppliers.

My Actions

--> To use inclusive language at all times 

--> To present a range of imagery for my business that reflects my clients and suppliers in full

--> To not shy away from discussions on racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, ableism, religion, and socio-economics at any time

--> To continue to do personal anti-racism work, and to put this work into business practice

--> To read and study the resources and literature that are available to me on inclusivity and diversity

--> To take on board any feedback or callings out, to learn from them, and to do better next time

This policy is an ongoing piece of work, and will be revisited and revised at least once a month to ensure consistent development. If you have any comments or queries on my inclusion policy, please email me at gemma@realheartweddings.com
