The Pensions Management Institute is committed to creating and sustaining a positive and supportive working environment for our staff, and an excellent teaching and learning experience for our members and learners. We aspire that staff are equally valued and respected, and that our members and learners are given every opportunity to develop professionally. As an employer and a professional institute, we value the diversity of our staff, members and learners. We are committed to providing a fair, equitable and mutually supportive learning and working environment for our members and staff.
We believe that excellence will be achieved through recognising the value of every individual. We aim to create an environment that respects the diversity of staff and members, enabling them to achieve their full potential, contribute fully and derive maximum benefit and enjoyment from their involvement in the life of the PMI.
To this end, we acknowledge the following basic rights for all staff and members:
- to be treated with respect and dignity
- to be treated fairly with regard to all procedures, assessments and choices
- to be encouraged to reach one’s full potential
These rights carry responsibilities and we require all staff and members to recognise these rights and act in accordance with them. In addition, we will comply with all relevant legislation and good practice.
No individual will be unjustly discriminated against. This includes, but is not limited to, discrimination because of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion and belief, sex and sexual orientation.
The PMI Board has overall responsibility for ensuring that we operate within a framework of equality of opportunity.
All members of staff, PMI members and learners have a duty to support and uphold the principles of our equality and diversity policy and its supporting policies.
