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 diversity and inclusion.
