kimberley Yearsley Unit 3 - Principles of diversity, equality and inclusion in adult social care settings 1.1 What is meant by:- Diversity: is meant by acknowledging that each individual is unique and recognize individual differences, for example; culture, ability, gender, race, religion, sexual orientation or any other individual characteristic. Equality: is fair treatment and access to opportunities for all regardless of differences like their ability, culture, race, gender, religion, sexual orientation or any other group characteristic. Equality is based on principles such as fairness, respect, honesty and providing opportunities. Equality can be shown by removing barriers, promoting ways to develop to their full potential and being treated fairly. Inclusion: is to embrace all people regardless of race, gender, age, ability etc.
Every person is unique and is individual so in order to promote equality it is important to treat everyone fairly. Each person has their own needs, wishes and preferences so it is imperative that these are respected. “Diversity” is another way of explaining “differences” and it’s important for us to realise that although often people may have many things in common with each other, they can also at the same time be very different and unique in many ways. We need to understand and recognize those differences, moreso than just simply tolerate them, so that we can embrace and value those people which will in itself produce a more conducive environment for all. The result of this should lead to “inclusion” which is about creating a sense of belonging, feeling included, feeling respected and valued, even though it may be that that person lacks some advantages.
An equality approach understands who we are, based on social categories such as gender, race, disability, religion, sexuality and age. Promoting equality should remove discrimination. Inclusion is used to promote the fact that all people should be freely and openly accommodated without restrictions or limitations of any kind. Inclusion is about valuing all individuals, giving equal access and opportunity to all and removing discrimination. Discrimination can make an individual feel in many different ways.
