Diversity Policy

Diversity Policy: BC General Aviation Association

The BC General Aviation Association (BCGA) is committed to fostering, cultivating and preserving a culture of diversity and inclusion in the club, and aviation as a whole.

The collective sum of the individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, self-expression, unique capabilities and viewpoints of our members represents a significant part of our culture. Regardless of what makes us different we all gather around a mutual love for flight.

We embrace and encourage our members’ differences in age, colour, disability, ethnicity, gender identity or expression, language, national origin, physical and mental ability, race, religion, sexual orientation, socio-economic status and other characteristics that make our members unique.

All BCGA members have a responsibility to treat others with dignity and respect at all times, whether it is online or at events, or simply as members of the greater aviation community.

The BCGA Facebook community will be actively monitored for inappropriate dialogue or behaviour against others, and offenders will be removed.

We recognize that there is work to be done to improve the accessibility and inclusivity of the BCGA, and the Executive is committed to listening, learning, and encouraging diversity.
