Diversity is about recognising and valuing difference in its broadest sense. It’s much more than disability, age, racial equality and gender issues. Equality is a legal requirement in the United Kingdom. The Equality Act 2010 is the law which bans unfair treatment and helps achieve equal opportunities in the workplace and in wider society.
Effective diversity policy is much more than ensuring the provisions of Equality are met. By valuing differences there is a huge potential of bottom line benefits from innovation, creativity, higher energy levels and greater levels of communication.
