Dublin South City Partnership is committed to enabling diversity and recognises that difference in a organisation is a strength.

The Policy

It is the policy of Dublin South City Partnership to recognise people as a key resource required for successful attainment of the organisation’s goals. In support of this, it is important to remember that differences between people, whether devised from their different backgrounds and personalities, cultures and/or their different abilities, can be a source of strength to Dublin South City Partnership.

Dublin South City Partnership is also committed to providing reasonable accommodation for a person with a disability, whether they are an applicant for employment or an employee requiring special facilities. Reasonable accommodation will be provided subject to such measures not imposing a disproportionate burden on the organisation.


In order to ensure that difference is respected in Dublin South City Partnership a number of procedures are in place. These are listed below:

  • Equal Opportunities –In place to encourage a work environment free from discrimination.
  • Dignity at Work – In place in relation to dignity at work include Dublin South City Partnership’s anti-harassment and sexual harassment policy and the anti-bullying policy.

  • Training and Development – This policy seeks to ensure that there is no discrimination in the selection process for training and development activities.
  • Grievance Procedure – This procedure is in place to ensure that should any employee feel that they have been treated unfairly, they can bring this to the attention of management in order to have the issue examined and resolved if possible.

Guidelines for organising events and activities for marginalised groups

The guide attached below called ‘Guidelines for organising events and activities for marginalised groups’  is set in a context where it is increasingly important that services are relevant and appropriate for marginalised people. The foundation for any approach is to treat all people with respect and kindness. Beyond that, we need to optimise the chances that events and activities are successful (measured by being a positive, beneficial experience for all participants – organisers and guests).
Experience shows, that creating this environment does not ‘just happen’ – we have to think about what we are doing.
