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 quite 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 looked at as opposite to each other, after all people can be different but they still have the same rights. When it comes to places of work there is legislation in place to ensure that we all meet our responsibilities in relation to equality and diversity, and one way to make sure we meet these responsibilities is through training.
