Becoming inclusive, promoting equality, embracing diversity: why are organisations interested

There continues to be discussion, programmes and training about equality, diversity and inclusion. Without appropriate awareness of these matters and how to deliver solutions to issues, some organisations will be at a disadvantage.

Organisations need to be aware of their responsibilities and consequences if things go wrong.
