Equality & Diversity Policy

Introduction

Nugent is committed to promoting equality of opportunity, celebrating and valuing diversity, eliminating unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation, including cyber or e-bullying and harassment, and promoting good relations. We are committed to achieving equality for all by reducing discrimination in employment and service delivery.

Equality means ensuring people are treated fairly, giving them equal access to services and employment. Diversity is about valuing differences, whatever an individual’s background.

In the Equality Act 2010 harassment is defined as ‘unwanted conduct related to a relevant protected characteristic, which has the purpose or effect of violating an individual’s dignity or creating an intimidating, hostile, degrading, humiliating or offensive environment for that individual’.
