  • To adopt a planned approach to eliminating perceived barriers which discriminate against particular groups. This will include widening the traditional approach and include communities experiencing disadvantage, poverty and health inequalities

  • To give clear guidance to individual working within the RFU and RFUW, either employed or as volunteers, on the commitment to equal opportunities.
  • To ensure that all those who participate in rugby union, at all levels and in all roles, receive fair and equitable treatment
  • To ensure that the format and content of all competitions, regulations and assessments provide equity for all, except where specific situations and conditions properly or reasonably prevent this
  • To ensure that all materials prepared, produced and distributed by or on behalf of the RFU and RFUW promote a clear image of the profile of all those who are apart of the game
