Diversity is about recognising that everyone is different in a variety of visible and non-visible ways. It is about creating a culture and practices that recognise, respect and value difference. It is about harnessing this potential to create a productive environment in which the equally diverse needs of the customer/client can be met in a creative environment. It is about generating a workforce who feels valued/ respected and has their potential fully utilised in order to meet organisational goals. Diversity is not an ‘initiative’ or a ‘project’; it is an on-going core aim and a core process.

Key points:
  • Recognising difference
  • Linking diversity to business goals
  • Diversity as ‘mainstream’ vision
  • Benefits of diversity are stressed
