Equity – goes beyond equality by making sure people are supported based on their needs to achieve equality of outcomes. This may mean some get more support than others to achieve equality
Diversity – Recognises that everyone is different, this can include visible and non-visible diversity, and that those differences are to be acknowledged, respected and valued
Inclusion – “The achievement of an environment in which all individuals are treated fairly and respectfully, have equal access to opportunities and resources and can contribute fully to the organisation’s success” (Society for Human Resource Management)
Here is the second version of the Equality Framework for Oxfordshire, brought together by Aseia Rafique and Vanisha Parmar, EDI specialists.
This has been the result of a collaborative process, working with volunteers, staff and trustees from 40+ different charities across Oxfordshire. The objective is to make progress in equity, diversity and inclusion faster, by working collaboratively across the County.
