Equality Statement

BLACK WAX MUSIC LTD OPPOSES ALL FORMS OF RACISM, HOMOPHOBIA, PREJUDICE AND DISCRIMINATION

Our process for selecting acts to work with on live performances, radio, management, or any other activities where an act is endorsed by Black Wax Music LTD, is primarily based on musical and artistic output. The opportunity for acts to work with Black Wax Music LTD will not be prohibited by any aspect of the Equality Act 2010.

The Equality Act 2010 replaced all existing equality legislation such as the Race Relations Act, Disability Discrimination Act and Sex Discrimination Act.

We are committed to the promotion of community cohesion through our events and online activities, comparing our local community to its local and national context and implementing all necessary actions in relation to:

  • ethnicity,
  • religion or belief, and
  • socio-economic background

We will assess and analyse our current practices and implement all necessary resulting actions to ensure staff, performers and customers are not discriminated against because of their:

  • Age (local licensing agreements will be adhered to);
  • Sex;
  • Sexual orientation;
  • Race;
  • Disability;
  • Religion, faith/belief;
  • Gender re-assignment;
  • Pregnancy or maternity;
  • Marriage and civil partnership

These ‘Protected characteristics’ have been set out in law in the Equality Act 2010.

Black Wax Music LTD is committed to eliminating practices, which could result in unfair or less favourable treatment for persons with a protected characteristic.
