Equality and Diversity

“Equal opportunity and diversity are interdependent. Diversity builds on equal opportunity and embraces its principles of equity but has a broader focus… This is because without valuing difference, communicating this and ‘walking the talk’, our work will not be premised on communicating respect for others – the wide range of others that we as teachers of English invariably engage with in many countries and cultures” (Adapted from: Equal opportunity and diversity workshop handbook, British Council 2007:8).
