Equality, diversity and inclusion

Gender Identity and Trans Inclusion Statement


Riverside is committed to equality of opportunity and values and respects the diversity of all its customers and colleagues.

We want all our customers and colleagues to feel they can be their authentic self everyday. We want everyone to feel comfortable and safe in our homes, communities and workplaces.

We have a zero tolerance approach to discrimination, victimisation or harassment on the basis of a person’s gender identity. We have confidential and supportive methods of reporting experiences or witnessing of bullying, harassment and discrimination for both customers and colleagues.

We aim to provide a welcoming and supportive environment for people to be who they are, irrespective of their gender identity and we value their unique contributions.

We believe that a trans inclusive environment enables our trans colleagues to be themselves in the workplace and perform to their best of their ability. Our Pride network provides support, ally ship and social connections for trans colleagues. For more information please see our Gender Identity and Trans Inclusion Policy.

We will seek to ensure that explicitly gendered language is not used in any of our policies or communications if it is not needed and will provide guidance for our colleagues on the appropriate use of pronouns and how they can create a trans inclusive environment for all.
