Equality and Diversity Online Training Course

Our online equality and diversity training course promotes opportunity for all, giving every one the chance to achieve their potential, free from prejudice and discrimination. ‘Equality’ and ‘diversity’ are often confused and used in the same context, but the terms are different and each has its own meaning, they are not the same.

Equality is about fairness and the respect of individual needs, treating everyone equally.

Diversity is about recognising, valuing and taking into account people’s different backgrounds, knowledge, skills, needs and experiences.
