With a focus on diversity, equality, and inclusion, we aim to foster a society where everyone is respected and valued. By embracing diversity and promoting equality, we can cultivate a culture that appreciates and celebrates the unique attributes of individuals from all walks of life.
To establish a solid foundation, we delve into the concept of protected characteristics. These are fundamental traits that are protected by law, including age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, and sexual orientation. By understanding these characteristics, we can identify the areas where discrimination may occur and work towards preventing it.
Direct discrimination is a topic we explore in detail. We provide a comprehensive understanding of what direct discrimination entails and how it negatively impacts individuals based on their protected characteristics. Similarly, we shed light on indirect discrimination, which occurs when seemingly neutral practices or policies disproportionately affect certain groups.
Harassment is another crucial subject covered on our website. We delve into the various forms of harassment, including verbal, non-verbal, and physical behaviours, explaining the damaging effects they have on individuals and the importance of creating safe spaces free from harassment.
Our content also delves into victimisation, emphasising the significance of recognising and addressing the mistreatment of individuals who have taken action against discrimination or supported someone in making a complaint.
Intersectionality is a concept we explore in-depth, as it acknowledges the unique experiences and multiple identities individuals possess. We highlight how different forms of discrimination can intersect and compound, affecting individuals in complex ways.
Discrimination by association is an important topic discussed on our website. We provide insights into how individuals can experience discrimination based on their association with someone who possesses a protected characteristic.
The course will also address discrimination by perception, which occurs when an individual is treated unfavourably based on how others perceive their protected characteristics. We emphasise the need to challenge preconceived notions and biases that contribute to this form of discrimination.
