The SACU is firmly committed to the underlying principles of equality and diversity.
The SACU believes that every person who wants to take part in the sport should be able to do so, regardless of their age, gender reassignment, disability, marital or civil partnership status, pregnancy or maternity, religion, race, sex, sexual orientation or socioeconomic status.
The SACU believes that its members and supporters should be free from any form of discrimination whether verbal, physical or mental. We believe that our members should be able to progress through our sport without encountering unwanted behaviour such as bullying, harassment, intimidation or any other form of abusive treatment.
The SACU will strive to ensure that perpetrators of such behaviour will be brought to question and held to account. In supporting this policy we believe that we will make our sport truly diverse and welcoming to all. We would like to assure all our members that we are truly committed to these principles and will strive to uphold this philosophy.
The Board of Directors of the SACU fully endorses the principle of sports equality and will strive to ensure that everyone who wishes to be involved in motorcycle sport at all levels:
Has a genuine and equal opportunity to participate to the full extent of their own ambitions and abilities, without regard to their age, gender reassignment, disability, marital or civil partnership status, pregnancy or maternity, religion, race, sex, sexual orientation or socioeconomic status; and can be assured of an environment in which their rights, dignity and individual worth are respected, and in particular that they are able to enjoy their sport without the threat of intimidation, victimisation, harassment or abuse.
