About Equality, Diversity & Inclusion
An organisation encouraging equality, diversity and inclusion can help people feel happy and motivated, increasing the organisation's success.
- Equality is the right of every individual having equal opportunities and resources, regardless of circumstances.
- Equity recognises different circumstances and provides exact opportunities and resources to reach an equal outcome.
- Diversity means valuing differences – all the things that make us who we are.
- Inclusion means creating an environment where everyone feels welcome and valued.
Together, this helps an organisation to improve ideas and problem solving and benefit a range of service users.
