Summary of the BSJU Equality Policy
The BSJU initiatives include working with athletes, officials and key partners to promote the highest standards of conduct and fair play, in Shuai Jiao. In addition, BSJU takes a leading role in promoting equality in Shuai Jiao to ensure there are no barriers to participation and involvement in particiption in Shuai Jiao for any social groups.
The overall aim is to support the development of a fair, equitable and ethical world-class Shuai Jiao in the United Kingdom, that is athlete-centred and people-focused. Equality is about recognising and removing the barriers faced by people involved, or wanting to be involved in Shuai Jiao. It is about changing the culture of Shuai Jiao to one that values diversity and enables the full involvement of disadvantaged groups in every aspect of Shuai Jiao.
