Diversity

Duration
1/2 Day

Diversity is an evolution of equal opportunities, not just concentrating on the different groups in the work place but understanding that people within the group all have differences that are both visible and non­visible, such as class, style of working, personality, responsibility for dependants, religion and belief, sexual orientation, disability, race and age.
