Equal

Our strategic plan defines Equal as: 'promote equality and justice between peoples and nations.’ YAS values equality and diversity, and is proud of the equal gender split of the current membership.  We strive to make our recruitment process fair and open, and encourage applications, regardless of gender, ethnicity, or any other protected characteristics.  In 2016, we introduced our At-Risk Academic and Refugee applications scheme to encourage displaced peoples to join YAS, and we have committed to continuing this initiative for at least the next two application rounds.

In addition to maintaining a diverse and equal membership, many of our activities promote equality and justice in Scotland and worldwide. To explore some of these activities, see below:
