Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

Equality is about ensuring everybody has an equal opportunity and is not treated differently or discriminated against because of their characteristics.

The famous quote by Verna Myers Diversity is being invited to the party; Inclusion is being asked to dance” is just the starting point. Diversity is about taking account of the differences between people and groups of people and placing a positive value on those differences.
