Explore the CIPD's collected perspective on key inclusion and diversity issues, including recommendations, supporting evidence and links to resources for policymakers and employers.
Diversity recognises that, though people have things in common with each other, they are also different many ways. Inclusion is where those differences are seen as a benefit, and where perspectives and differences are shared, leading to better decisions. Everyone should have a right to equal access to employment and, when employed, should have equal pay and equal access to training and development. Here you’ll find information on equal opportunities, managing inclusion and diversity.

The CIPD is a Disability Confident Leader. We work with the DWP and lead the way in changing attitudes towards disability, and to encourage all employers to provide opportunities to ensure that people with disabilities and those with long-term health conditions are able to fulfil their potential at work.
