All are welcome
We are committed to making Silicon Valley Curling Club a diverse and inclusive environment in which all curlers can thrive. We strive to be a community that welcomes and supports people of all backgrounds and identities. This includes, but is not limited to, members of any race, ethnicity, culture, national origin, color, immigration status, social and economic class, educational level, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity and expression, age, size, family status, political belief, religion, and mental and physical ability.
Reports of exclusionary language, behavior, and harassment are taken seriously at SVCC. Please read the Code of Conduct for more information about our policies.
Diversity and Inclusion Initiatives
In June 2020, the SVCC Board of Directors created a Diversity Committee whose primary goal is to tackle initiatives that will increase the representation of the diversity of the local communities in which we curl and allow SVCC to truly become the welcoming and inclusive community all curlers strive for.
Contact us if you would like to join our Diversity Committee to help shape our club policies or
are interested in partnering with Silicon Valley Curling Club on our Diversity and Inclusion initiatives.
The following are resources that we have found to be informative and we hope will help us on our mission to promote diversity in curling. If you have additional resources you would like to share with us, please let us know.
