British Weight Lifting achieve the Preliminary Level of the Equality Standard for Sport

We are delighted to announce that we have achieved the Preliminary Level of the Equality Standard for Sport. 

The Equality Standard is a Framework for Sport (the Standard) was launched by the UK sports councils in November 2004 to help address the inequalities that exist within the sports sector. It is a framework to guide sports organisations, including: governing bodies of sport, county sports partnerships (CSPs), sports councils and national sports organisations towards achieving equality.

British Weight Lifting achieve the Preliminary Level of the Equality Standard for Sport

There are four levels of achievements within the Standard –Foundation, Preliminary, Intermediate and Advanced.

Four outcomes have to be met in order to achieve the Preliminary Standard:

Outcome 1 – Your organisation is aware of its current external profile and position in terms of equality.

Outcome 2 – Your organisation has a robust equality action plan to advance equality and increase participation. Staff (paid and unpaid) understand how this plan relates to their role.

Outcome 3 -All board members and staff (paid and unpaid) within your organisation understand the general principles of equality and how it relates to their sport.

Outcome 4 - Your recruitment practices and policies seek to advance equality.

Chief Operating Officer for British Weight Lifting Kath Leonard commented, “Achieving the Preliminary Level of the Equality Standard for Sport is a fantastic achievement for us and is the result of a lot of hard work by our staff. As a National Governing Body we are passionate about equality and are committed to promoting and continually developing it across all areas of the sport. We are very much looking forward to working towards the Intermediate Level”.
