Equality, Diversity and Discrimination

In the workplaces of today, it is quite likely that we have heard the words ‘equality’ and ‘diversity’, but it’s important that we understand what they actually mean. Equality refers to the fact that we are equal and should be treated as such, especially when it comes to rights and opportunities. Diversity is being different or varied, but it is a mistake to see these two things as opposites, as people may be different but are still entitled to the same rights.

There is legislation in place when it comes to the workplace to ensure that our responsibilities in regard to equality and diversity are met, and one way to ensure this is through training.

gender reassignment

marriage and civil partnership

pregnancy and maternity


religion or belief


sexual orientation.
