Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion Policy
Zarastro Art is dedicated to fostering an environment that promotes inclusivity and diversity. We endeavor to create a space where individuals from all backgrounds, races, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, ages, religions, disabilities, or any other characteristic mentioned below in our objectives, feel a sense of belonging, appreciation, and respect.
As a digital art platform, our commitment to the principles of equality, diversity, and inclusion are fundamental to our mission. Enhancing creativity, innovation, and positivity, and enriching our artistic community are dependent on the principles that we proudly uphold.
Reflecting the richness of the broader people, we take pride in celebrating the contributions of our customers, artists, users, and staff from all parts of the society. We are devoted to cultivating an environment that ensures equal opportunities for everyone.
Our platform actively opposes any form of discrimination, harassment, or prejudice. It is explicitly stated that engaging in any form of aforementioned actions will result in disciplinary consequences.
Our Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion objectives are to:
- Create an environment where individuals from diverse backgrounds, including sex, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, race, ethnicity, disability, religion, marital status, civil partnerships, pregnancy & maternity, and experiences, feel welcome, safe, and encouraged to fully participate in all aspects of the platform.
- Eliminate all types of discrimination, whether they are direct, indirect, or systemic, from our organization.
- Represent diverse perspectives and experiences, providing a platform for artists from different backgrounds to showcase their talents through our physical and digital spaces.
- Provide equal opportunities for professional growth and development to all of our staff, artists, and collaborators, irrespective of their background or identity.
- Strive to make our digital platforms (and physical spaces if applicable) accessible to people with disabilities, ensuring everyone can experience our work.
Our Equality, Diversity, and Inclusion policy underlines that we implement:
- Ongoing training to promote awareness and understanding of diversity and inclusion issues for all staff, volunteers and stakeholders. This training will encompass identifying and challenging unconscious biases, understanding the negative impact of exclusionary practices, and fostering an inclusive mindset.
- Recruitment process which is fair and transparent, actively seeking candidates from diverse backgrounds. We aim to provide equal opportunities for career advancement and recognition based on merit and talent.
- A curatorial approach which actively seeks and encourages artists from various cultural, and ethnic backgrounds, and genders to exhibit work exploring a plethora of societal issues on our platform.
- Digital accessibility and inclusion to ensure our art is accessible to all visitors and participants.
