Equality, Diversity and Inclusion

The Cornwall Federation of WIs believes that all women have a place in the WI, and we follow the Equality, Diversity and Inclusion policy set forth by the National Federation of WIs.

We welcome women of all backgrounds and create a supportive environment in which they can thrive. Opportunities are open and available to all members and we aim to make activities and meetings as inclusive as possible. For us this means not only stating that our doors are open to all, but to actively strive to make sure that our members are heard, seen and accommodated for. We welcome all women regardless of their age, race, physical ability, ethnicity, sexual orientation, or whether they are transgender, cisgender or non-binary. A woman is a woman and she is welcome to join us.

We do not ask members any personal questions as part of the joining process and are committed to ensuring all members are treated fairly and equally whatever their background or individual circumstances, with equal access to all opportunities.

Members who would find it easier to attend our events with an interpreter, carer, or personal assistant for accessibility reasons are welcome to do so at no extra charge.

Please feel free to get in touch with us if you have any questions or want to chat about how we can make The Cornwall Federation of WIs work for you.
