Equality, Diversity and Inclusivity Policy


1. The Lansdowne Club is committed to eliminate discrimination whether by reason of age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage or civil partnership, pregnancy or maternity, race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin, religion or belief, sex, or sexual orientation (‘Protected Characteristics’) and to encourage equal opportunities for members, guests and employees.

2. This is not merely a legal requirement, but equalities have been in the best tradition of the Club since foundation as the first Private Members Club to have been founded on the principle that women should be admitted on equal terms to men.

3. Our commitment to anti-discrimination and equal opportunities applies throughout the Lansdowne Club at every level and ensures that in all our activities we will not discriminate or treat anyone less favourably because of a Protected Characteristic. Members and employees must not unlawfully discriminate against or harass other people including current and former members or employees, applicants, guests, suppliers, and other visitors. This applies in both inside of and outside of the Club, on social media and at all social events (including offsite employee social events).

4. The Lansdowne Club will not tolerate any harassment, bullying or other discriminatory behaviour, whether physical or verbal and will work to ensure that such behaviour is met with appropriate action in whatever context it occurs.

5. The Lansdowne Club will endeavour to consider reasonable adjustments for any individual with special needs. Members and employees are encouraged to notify the Club of any special needs to help ensure the appropriate support may be planned for and provided.
