Gaba is committed to fostering acceptance and respect for all its stakeholders. We are proud of our diverse group of Instructors and we have set up a clear diversity policy to ensure respect and equal opportunity for all at Gaba, including recruitment decisions for those hoping to join Gaba as an Instructor or other role.
Specifically, Gaba’s policy is to work with instructors to ensure fair treatment without regard to race, nationality, sex, religion, age, education, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, and disability. In doing so we aim to ensure that all instructors, Gaba staff, and clients will continue to benefit from involvement in a learning environment with an extremely diverse group of participants.
This policy applies to all of Gaba’s dealings with instructors. All decisions made by Gaba regarding recruitment, lesson remuneration, belting, certification, and all other matters related to its dealings with instructors will be made without bias. In addition, Gaba expects that all interactions between its staff, instructors, and clients will be fair, non-discriminatory, and consistent with this policy.
