EQUALITY, DIVERSITY, AND THE SGD

The SGD aims to be an inclusive Society to any Professional Garden Designer wanting to join and progress their career. Adherence to the 2010 Equality and Diversity Act is taken seriously and is part of the SGD Code of Professional Conduct. Breaches or complaints of discrimination against the 9 Protected Characteristics, which include race, gender, and sexuality, are taken seriously. The SGD are taking action to review how accessible both the Society and the garden design industry as a whole are to all individuals. This includes a member survey, discussing with Educators accessibility to courses and career progression, and looking into how socially entrenched attitudes may create barriers to participation.

 Guidance to all our members is in line with the current Government Advice  and they are advised to update regularly.
