Equality and Diversity
County Council is committed to equality of opportunity for all
citizens and celebrates the diversity of all its residents.
This is treating people fairly. The law seeks to prevent and
eliminate unlawful discrimination for people who have one or more
of the following protected characteristics. These areas are age,
disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership,
pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, and sexual
This means “variety”. Valuing diversity means valuing people and
recognising that everyone is unique/different but of equal worth.
This is treating a person, without a justification, less favourably
than another, particularly because of one’s feelings, assumptions
or prejudices about the characteristics, attributes or
circumstances of that person. This can include certain forms of
harassment or abuse.
