Equality and Diversity
When growing a business consideration should be given to two important areas: Sustainable development and Equality and Diversity.
Equality and Diversity is vital for a business to consider when growing, and businesses should ask themselves some key questions. For example, what steps will be taken to prevent discrimination based on racial or ethnic origin, religion or belief, disability, age or sexual orientation? How will accessibility for people with disabilities be taken into account?
