Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

RGA embraces an environment where equity, diversity and inclusion are cultural norms and where all individuals, regardless of race, ancestry, place of origin, color, ethnic origin, citizenship, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression, age, marital status, family status or ability are respected and valued.

RGA's Diversity, Equity & Inclusion Statement

We value equity, diversity, and inclusion because every person has a right to equal treatment, and we are strengthened by diverse backgrounds, perspectives, and experiences. We stand against any form of racism, discrimination, or harassment in and outside of the gym, to ensure all Albertans see themselves represented in our sport. Cultivating equity, diversity and inclusion is an ongoing process and we acknowledge that there is still much work to be done but RGA is committed to continuous improvement in these areas and we resolve to incorporate inclusion, diversity, and equity matters in our strategies, plans, actions, and operations; including technical programs, business management, sponsorship, marketing, media and communications.

Principles of DEI


Diversity refers to differences among people, including race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, age, and ability.


Equity refers to fair treatment, with the goal to remove barriers that prevent certain groups from participation.


Inclusion refers to creating a welcoming, supportive environment where everyone feels respected, valued, and able to participate.
