Enhanced Verifiable CPD from the
University of Birmingham

Equality and Diversity

This module covers “Equality and diversity” - a term used in the United Kingdom to promote equality, diversity and human rights as fundamental values of society.


Equality

People aren’t “equal”. People are diverse. Equality in this phrase is about providing equality of opportunity for everyone, allowing them to achieve their potential, free from discrimination or prejudice.


Diversity

In this context, “Diversity” is the political and social policy of encouraging tolerance for people of different backgrounds. It includes mutual respect for multiple ethnic cultures, special needs, disability, gender and more.


Inclusivity

This means trying to include many different types of people and treat them all fairly and equally. It is more positive and less passive than "diversity".
