Description:
The Health Service Employers Agency are to be congratulated on the publication of this "Guide to Equal Opportunities/Accommodating Diversity". It usefully forms part of a wider package that includes a training video and CD/ROM. The HSEA, through this work, are playing a vital role in supporting employers to gear up to the provisions and ambitions of the Employment Equality Act 1998. This is particularly important in a sector with such a large and diverse workforce. This initiative exemplifies the purpose of the framework committee, established by the social partners under the Programme for Prosperity and Fairness, which funded ihis work. The dual focus of the HSEA on equal opportunities and accommodating diversity must also be acknowledged.

Taking steps to acknowledge and celebrate this diversity and to meet practical needs that arise from this diversity are key to effective equality strategies. It will be important that the supports developed by the HSEA are incorporated into an equality infrastructure within organisations. Key elements in such an equality infrastructure are:
