I thought #Equality was being equal !! Regardless who you are

equalityEquality is ensuring individuals or groups of individuals are treated fairly and equally and no less favourably, specific to their needs, including areas of race, gender, disability, religion or belief, sexual orientation and age. Promoting equality should remove discrimination in all of the aforementioned areas. Bullying, harassment or victimization are also considered as equality and diversity issues.

Diversity aims to recognise, respect and value people’s differences to contribute and realise their full potential by promoting an inclusive culture for all staff and students.

We can promote equality and diversity by:

treating all staff and students fairly
creating an inclusive culture for all staff and students
ensuring equal access to opportunities to enable students to fully participate in the learning process
enabling all staff and students to develop to their full potential
equipping staff and students with the skills to challenge inequality and discrimination in their work/study environment
making certain that any learning materials do not discriminate against any individuals or groups
ensuring policies, procedures and processes don’t discriminate
