Equality, Diversity and Discrimination

Approved by CPD

Equality DiversityEquality and Diversity is the current term used for ‘Equal Opportunities’. It is the legal obligation to protect against discrimination.

Discrimination can be against a person’s sex, gender, disability, sexual orientation, religion, belief, race or age.

We’ve all heard and used the words ‘equality’ and ‘diversity’ before, but what do they mean, and how do they affect you as an employer or employee?

If you take the words on their own, they are different; equality is the state of being equal, especially in rights and opportunities.

Diversity is the state of being different or varied.

However, these two things should not be seen as the opposite; after all, people can be different but still have the same rights.

When it comes to workplaces, legislation is in place to ensure that we all meet our responsibilities regarding equality and diversity. And one way to make sure we meet these responsibilities is through training.

In this course, we will discuss two topics: equality and diversity and how they relate to one another. Understanding this will help us identify and address unfairness and discrimination issues in the workplace.
