At the Deeside Dragons, we strive to be more than just an ice hockey club. We aim to be a community that values the uniqueness of each individual, celebrates diversity, and fosters a culture of inclusion and equality.
Our team is made up of a vibrant mix of players, volunteers, and supporters from various backgrounds, cultures, ages, genders, and abilities. We are proud to represent a rich tapestry of diverse individuals, as it is this diversity that fuels our innovation, broadens our perspectives, and enriches our understanding of the world.
The Deeside Dragons believe in the principle of equality, ensuring that all members have equal access to opportunities and resources, regardless of their backgrounds or circumstances. We are committed to creating an environment where everyone feels valued, supported, and empowered to bring their whole selves to the club. This commitment extends to our hiring practices, volunteer recruitment, player selection, and beyond.
We take pride in cultivating an inclusive atmosphere where everyone feels a sense of belonging. Each member of the Deeside Dragons is encouraged to express their ideas, opinions, and concerns freely. We actively foster a culture where differences are celebrated, and each person’s contributions are acknowledged and appreciated.
While we are proud of our accomplishments, we understand that fostering diversity, equality, and inclusion is an ongoing process. We are committed to continual learning, self-reflection, and improvement. To this end, we are in the process of developing additional strategies and initiatives that will further enhance our DEI efforts. We look forward to sharing these updates with our community in the near future.
As a club, we are determined to uphold these values in everything we do, from our team interactions to our relationships with fans, sponsors, and the wider community. The Deeside Dragons invite all those who share these values to join us as we continue to make our club a beacon of diversity, equality, and inclusion in the world of sports.
