Unit name: Equality and inclusion in care settings
Learning outcome: 1. Understand the importance of equality and inclusion
Assessment criteria: 1.3 Explain how practices that support equality and inclusion reduce the likelihood of discrimination
There are many ways that organizations can reduce the likelihood of discrimination in their organization.
One way is to adopt and implement practices that support equality and inclusion. These strategies include creating a diverse workforce, empowering employees with different perspectives, recognizing differences in communication styles, and celebrating the role of difference within an organization.
These practices not only help ensure fairness for everyone but also create an environment where people feel safe from being discriminated against because they have been born into or chosen different paths than those traditionally recognised by society.
Providing opportunities for people who might otherwise feel like they do not belong is crucial because it helps provide fairness for everyone while also creating an environment where people are less likely to be discriminated against.
