Equality & Inclusion

Our goal is a Commonwealth where all people are treated equally within their communities and before the law, regardless of their sex, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or other status.

Championing Equality and Inclusion in the Commonwealth

The Royal Commonwealth Society is a proud champion of a wide range of values which the Commonwealth holds to be crucial to the progression of its member nations.  One such value – Equality and Inclusion – is being pressed forward in a 2020 campaign led by Commonwealth youth around the globe, called Reform 53.
