The Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Stool
Like a stool that is only fully functional and stable with all 3 legs, equality, diversity and Inclusion are also all interrelated and intertwined. The ‘seat’ of the stool, that holds all together is a human rights framework based on the principles and human rights values of fairness, respect, equality and dignity as well as the organisational values.
Successful organisation who want to reap the benefits of equality, diversity and Inclusion have to ensure any strategies they develop have all three, EDI, as key components complementing each other.
An equal society seeks equality in the freedoms that people have to lead a fulfilling life.
An equal society protects and promotes equal, real freedom and substantive opportunity to live in the ways people value and would choose, so that everyone can flourish.
An equal society recognises people’s different needs, situations and goals and removes the barriers that limit what people can do and can be.
The workplace is an extension of society, in which individuals spend most of their time and thus all the above principles are applicable in the workplace. The reality is that we do not live in ideal societies and thus have legislation in place to protect people from discrimination and promote the above principles of equality, this is the Equality Act 2010.
Diversity in the workplace means having employees from a wide range of backgrounds. This can include having employees of different ages, gender, ethnicity, physical ability, sexual orientation, religious belief, work experience, educational background, and so on.
A diverse workforce that reflects the local and national demographics of society is therefore essential for Organisations so that they can continue to provide services, products and become more relevant to all sections of society.
Cognitive Diversity is ensuring systems and processes are in place to enable people from various levels and functions to interact, share and learn (way employees think, act and are motivated)
An inclusive workplace is one where everyone is treated with dignity and respect, where the talents and skills of different groups are valued, and where productivity and customer service improves because the workforce is happier, more motivated and more aware of the benefits that inclusion can bring.
Creating an atmosphere of inclusiveness in the workplace is achieved by embracing diversity. This means creating a workplace in which people of all backgrounds and cultures feel included, welcome, and valued. Inclusion involves respecting individual differences and capturing the advantages they provide
