Equality and Diversity – Main

Online Equality and Diversity

The definition of discrimination is the unjust or prejudicial treatment of different categories of people, especially on the grounds of race, age, or sex.

Discrimination occurs when an individual receives less favorable treatment than others in a similar circumstance based on the individual differences we identified earlier in this module. This could be on the grounds of age, class status, religion, sexual orientation, and other perceived differences.
