Our Commitment to Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

Last modified: Version 1.3 February 2023

In everything we do at oboloo, we strive to ensure that equality, diversity, and inclusion are central principles. We support everyone to overcome any barriers that stand in their way to full inclusion and participation in society.

What do we mean by equality, diversity and inclusion?

We all originate from a different background, have a different family structure, come from a different geographical area, a different faith and belief system and a different perspective on life. Some of these differences are obvious, but others are difficult to see. Embracing diversity involves valuing and harnessing these differences.

The extent to which individuals feel valued and included – whether at work, in public services, or in wider society – is called inclusion

Our team at oboloo understands how diversity and inclusion can make an organisation stronger; helping us to learn, innovate and deliver benefits for the people we’re here to serve. Diversity is a core part of everything we do and we strive to make our products and services accessible to everyone.

What is our position on diversity and inclusion?

oboloo does not tolerate any type of discrimination, victimisation, or harassment based on age, disability, gender, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy or maternity, race, religion or belief, or sex or sexual orientation.

In all areas of our work, we strive to tackle the inequalities and exclusion experienced by many and to promote equal opportunities and inclusion to everyone who uses our products as well as our employees

How do we do promote inclusion in our work?

As a company, we make every effort to ensure that we are inherently inclusive in all areas of our work and operations, whether that is providing services to our customers or hiring employees and understanding that they have different needs, choices, cultures, and values.

As an employer

Our commitment to respecting and valuing the diversity of our staff is top of our agenda.

In addition to driving change, improving our company and monitoring progress, our Senior Directors facilitate the sharing of best practice across our organisation to ensure oboloo meets its statutory obligations under the Equality Act 2010 and all other relevant legislation.

Why do we do this?

Society cannot improve for anyone while people are treated unfairly because of their age, or their ethnicity, gender, religion or belief, sexual orientation, or because they are disabled.

Discrimination in employment and training, and in the provision of goods, facilities, and services is prohibited based on gender, gender identity, race, religion and belief, sexual orientation and disability.

In addition to enhancing social cohesion, tolerance, stability, and prosperity, an inclusive society where all members with dignity and respect are treated will also provide greater social cohesion, tolerance, and stability for all members of society.
