DIVERSITY & EQUAL PAY POLICY

FairPlanet is committed to promoting equality and diversity in all aspects of its organisation, its network of journalists, contributors and partners as well as its community of readers. As an employer, FairPlanet promotes a diverse, inclusive and representative working environment in which everyone is treated with dignity and respect. Equality and Diversity is a fundamental issue; this policy embodies an ethical rejection of discrimination, not just compliance with statutory requirements.

FairPlanet pursues a global equal pay policy. Its staff members, as well as contributing journalists, are located in more than 40 countries. All staff and contributors are being paid strictly equally across the globe regardless of their country of residence.

In pursuance of this policy, FairPlanet aims to ensure that all staff, job applicants, clients and customers are treated fairly regardless of sex, gender reassignment, marital or civil partnership status, race (which includes colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin), disability, sexual orientation, age, medical status and religion or belief.

The promotion of equality and diversity will be pursued through FairPlanet's recruitment and selection procedures, training, career development, disciplinary procedures and all other aspects of the organisation's management. The main consideration in appointments is evidence of the ability or potential of the candidate to deliver high-quality performance in the requirements of the job.
