Equality and diversity is a term used in the United Kingdom to define and champion equality, diversity and human rights as defining values of society. It promotes equality of opportunity for all, giving every individual the chance to achieve their potential, free from prejudice and discrimination. On this course, we also include Inclusion, which means to include everyone, no matter what their background or beliefs.
UK legislation requires public authorities to promote equality in everything that they do, also making sure that other organisations meet their legal duties to promote equality while also doing so themselves.
In the UK there are certain legal requirements under existing legislation to promote equality in the areas of disability, gender and race. These are often collectively referred to as the general duties to promote equality.
This ProTrainings course covers the key aspects of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion to ensure that employees and employers understand their responsibilities at work.
