TRIBES PURPOSE AND MISSION
TRIBES has been created to provide a fitness Platform for fitness trainers, participants and supporting organisations of the LGBTQIA community. The platform, both the TRIBES website and the TRIBES app, are designed to easily connect the community to engage in fitness activities, discussion and join together for social events.
Existing in this way, TRIBES has a purpose to create an inclusive, safe and exciting community where healthy living and a thriving, supportive environment plays a central role in the lives of its members.
Creating open and inclusive community commitments is an important step in fostering a welcoming environment for the LGBTQIA community and their allies at TRIBES. To achieve this we ask all of our members and service providers ("We") to participate in accordance with our community commitments.
We commit to treating all individuals, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression, with respect and dignity. Discrimination or harassment based on an individuals LGBTQIA status will not be tolerated and, depending on the severity of a reported incident may result in termination of community membership.
We will use inclusive language that respects and acknowledges all gender identities. We will strive to avoid assumptions about people's identities and use gender-neutral terms whenever possible.
We aim to create safe spaces where LGBTQIA individuals can participate without fear of prejudice or discrimination. We encourage everyone to report any incidents of harassment or discrimination to a TRIBES representative so that appropriate action can be taken.
We will celebrate and recognize the diversity within our community, including LGBTQIA identities. We will actively work to create an environment where everyone feels valued and included, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
We commit to regularly evaluating our progress in creating an open and inclusive environment for LGBTQIA community members. We will actively seek feedback and suggestions from the community to continually improve our efforts.
