The Society of Scottish Artists aims to acknowledge and reflect the diversity in Scotland today in all our work. Our ambition is to be a fair and inclusive organisation complying with the requirements of equality and human rights. This starts with understanding and evidencing the EDI (equality, diversity and inclusion) profile of our members. Data unlocks the potential to shine a light on issues with a strong evidence base to back it up. By delving into the data we hold, we can develop a better understanding of how different groups are affected by our processes.

To monitor our work and ensure equality of access for our membership we need to collect information which does not directly relate to our assessment of your application. We include questions on age, gender, ethnicity, disability, and sexual orientation – all defined ‘protected characteristics’ in The Equality Act 2010. We also include a question on Gaelic language.

In providing your completed response , you are giving explicit consent for us to use this data for statistical reporting. The data is managed confidentially, is not personally attributable, will not have any bearing on your application for funding and is processed in accordance with the Data Protection Act.

If you do not know some of the information or if you prefer not to provide it, you can fill in the ‘Prefer not to say’ box.
