Diversity recognises that though people have things common with each other, they are also different and unique in many ways. Diversity is about recognising and valuing those differences. “Sometimes you may have to care for clients whose values are different to yours, but you must make sure that you still care for them in a fair way, and that they can express their values without fear of discrimination.” EQUALITY: is the vision of creating society where power and quality of life is shared equally and both individuals and communities are able to live their lives free from discrimination and oppression experienced by certain groups. INCLUSION: its position where someone or various groups can access and benefit from the full range of opportunities available to members of society. Social inclusion is generally seen as a description of activities aimed at removing barriers such as discrimination, isolation, poverty and fear to enable individuals and communities to fully participate in civil society.
This would be the appropriate comment to embed congruence, showing that we are real and genuine and to understand that we will experience diversity. In practice working with diversity means to become aware of the diversity between ourselves, the people we work with and the communities we serve.

We define diversity as four fold: values, emotional, identity and physical characteristics, and others are emotional such as behaviour and style. Invisible difference includes values such as integrity and a way of life, and identity – also invisible – includes gay and lesbian and social class.
Why is diversity valued? Diversity to me is the differences that makes us unique, like our race, religion, gender, hair color, eye color, age and education. There are so many things that make us different. I this is what make it so valued. We appreciate the differences in each other and value the different strengths that we all bring to the table.
