Freedom. Respect. Responsibility.

Anita Richards Designs embraces diversity, equity and inclusion across all spectra of race, colour, gender, sex, sexuality, language, religion, age, ability/disability, health status, political or other opinion, national or social origin, property, birth or other status in a true spirit of accord with the principles enshrined in The Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

We are committed to creating and maintaining a safe and inclusive customer environment and workplace.

We take the use of discriminatory behaviours and language extremely seriously; it is inexcusable and we strive to take the best actions possible ensuring that divisive language or behaviours are not used in any way across our business. We want our colleagues, customers, business partners and the wider community to know that we value and respect all people.

We recognize that addressing conscious and unconscious bias is an ongoing effort within ourselves, our organisation and society at large.

We are committed to continuing that journey, to never be complacent in our efforts to ensure our workplace, customer environment, and our product lines, appropriately and authentically reflect the values of genuinely inclusive society.
