Equality is about ensuring everybody has an equal opportunity, and is not treated differently or discriminated against because of their characteristics. Diversity is about taking account of the differences between people and groups of people, and placing a positive value on those differences.
Certain characteristics are protected by the Equality Act 2010 and it is necessary for every employee to know what these are, so they can abide by the legislation.
We feel it's important for all organisations and their employees, including our own, to be fully aware of Equality and Diversity.
We've recently had a number of requests for our Equality and Diversity essentials course. To support this, we've made the course free of charge until the end of 2020.
