A truly diverse organisation is not one that just talks about diversity. A truly diverse organisation is one where every individual demonstrates diversity through the actual behaviours that are exhibited towards each other. Creating an “inclusive” working environment, where everyone’s needs and values are taken into account is what diversity is all about.

 

While it is important to look at current legislation, especially now the new Equality Act has come into force, legislation will never get under the skin of how people feel and behave. To understand this requires an exploration of people's attitudes, feelings and perspectives on equality, diversity, discrimination, harassment, bullying and exclusion. People need to grapple with their own prejudices and stereotypes and see how prejudice translates into active discrimination. Having an aware workforce that understands their role in making it happen is a critical part of the diversity journey for any organisation.
