Equality and diversity
What do we mean by Equality & Diversity?
Equality of opportunity describes addressing those barriers that
prevent social, economic and political participation due to a
persons’ race, gender, religion or belief, sexual orientation,
disability, age, class or gender reassignment.
Diversity is based upon the concept that people should be valued
as individuals with different skills, personalities and work
styles. Recognising and treating everyone with respect and
promoting both individual and group differences.
