Equality is the right of individuals and different groups of people to have a similar social position and receive the same treatment by being treated fairly and equally and no less favourably, specific to their needs, including areas of race, gender, disability, religion or belief, sexual orientation and age.
Diversity is valuing the differences individuals or groups have and appreciating their individual characteristics, it recognises that we are all different and highlights the need to value each individuals input and needs. Inclusion refers to the aim of embracing everyone irrespective of race, gender, disability or any other need. Inclusion helps to remove barriers and eliminate discrimination. This applies to families, carers, friends, multi professionals, and colleagues, and as a Manager I am responsible to ensure Equality, Diversity and Inclusion is maintained at all times, as per Greenlight’s Policy and Legislation. I achieve this through respecting and acknowledging the needs of both customers and staff, offering support and help when required and altering my approach to suit, having an understanding of equality, diversity and inclusion allows me to engage both customers and staff without them feeling discriminated against on the grounds of: age, sex, disability, gender (including gender reassignment), marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or sexual orientation. At Greenlight we promote an open, inclusive culture where harassment, bullying ; discrimination cannot thrive. My position as manager requires me to be actively monitoring this and ensure people are aware and respecting these principles as they are central to our safeguarding procedures. In order to promote equality and diversity at Greenlight it is important that each staff member is aware and has an understanding of relevant legislation, principles and practices, which are achieved through training (Safeguarding vulnerable adults, Deprivation of Liberty safeguards and Equality and Diversity in Health and Social Care) without these it can be difficult to get staff promote and support it. We also have an equal opportunities policy and procedure which staff read and sign to say they have understood it and what is expected of them in their role.
