Kick It Out recognises Norwich City with Equality Standard awardTHIS summer Norwich City Football Club were honoured to have been awarded by Kick It Out the Preliminary Level of the Equality Standard for Professional Football Clubs in recognition of their work to promote equality.
Kick It Out chairman Lord Herman Ouseley and his colleague, Sheila Rogers, have travelled to Carrow Road today to attend our game with Bournemouth and will present the award to Norwich City Chief Executive David McNally.
The Equality Standard is a framework which encourages and supports the development of equality practices and policies at professional clubs across England and Wales. It serves to highlight key areas of diversity including race, religion, age, gender, disability and sexual orientation.
The Club has been working alongside Kick It Out to demonstrate its efforts against a series of objectives, ranging from the implementation of a complaints reporting policy and the provision of a disability access audit, to the training of staff and furthering the personal development of employees.
The Standard also measures City’s recruitment policies, as well as recognising the delivery of activities and projects to under-represented groups in the community in association with Norwich City Community Sports Foundation.
Norwich is one of only 17 clubs in the four leagues to hold an Equality Standard Award, having demonstrated its proactive and continued approach to treating everyone with dignity and respect.
