What are diversity, equity and inclusion?
Diversity refers to the traits and characteristics that make people unique while inclusion refers to the behaviours and social norms that ensure people feel welcome. Equity stands for breaking down barriers, eliminating discrimination and ensuring equal opportunities.”
A diverse organisation is able to take advantage of a wide range of viewpoints and experiences, and data shows that this improves how well they perform. We believe that there are sound business and moral reasons for EEMUA to ensure it reflects all of society, and we want all our staff to be welcome at work, regardless of any labels – we only care about the person they’re attached to, showing respect and encouraging open communication.
We know our Members are working to promote diversity and inclusion, and we will highlight their initiatives and good practice.
