Equality and diversity monitoring
At PETRA, we are strongly committed to ensuring that our membership is tolerant, open, and diverse. Initially, we weren't going to include a section where we asked for your personal information like sex, gender, ethnicity etc. However, we have realised that we do need to collect this information to be able to monitor the effectiveness of our equality policies. We have tried to make the form as easy to use as possible, and omit any terms that might cause offense, but we do understand that these are sometimes tricky things to talk about, so if you have any problems with what we've done here, please get in touch and let us know.
Our questions about ethnicity are derived from the UK Government's census list of ethnicity (link).
