Ask the question "What is Equality and Diversity" and you will get a variety of answers. There is much confusion, it is often obscured by myths and most people are wary of dealing with Equality and Diversity issues for fear that they may do or say something wrong. This module is aimed at making things clearer.

The starting point for diversity is quite simple; we live in a society where everyone is different. The composition of different groups in society can be termed as being diverse. Think about how you feel, most people want to be treated fairly, with respect and dignity, and given an equal opportunity to make a success of their lives.
