Equality- When in a work setting equality is achieved when all children have equal opportunities to participate in different activities. This can also be seen as showing ‘’equal concern’’ for each individual child. This means we should meet the needs of all children and families. Equality of opportunity is making sure that everyone in the society is treated equally and fairly in order to reach each individuals potential. In a childcare setting it is important to provide learning opportunities for children that explore their own identity
P4 - Explain how national initiatives promote anti - discriminatory practice. Discrimination; treating a person or particular group of people differently, especially in a worse way from the way in which you treat other people, because of their skin colour, sex, sexuality, etc. National initiatives promote anti discriminatory practice through ensuring that key pieces of information is widely accessible for everyone to see. It is extremely important for health and social care organisations to promote anti discriminatory practice. Anti discriminatory practice is any practice meant to counter discrimination based on race, class, gender,disability, etc and promote equality by introducing anti discrimination policies in care settings.
All the early care setting should have equality policies and procedures in order to avoid any form of discrimination. The UN Convention on the Rights of the child 1991, states that each country should protect children from discrimination and to promote children rights. Equality policies and procedures should include children, staff members and families. Each setting should set up their own policies and procedures in relation with the current legislative framework – The Equal Status Acts 2000 to 2004. Policy is a strategy, rule, plan or guideline proposed by an organization/individual in order to help taking decisions and action in achieving organization’s goals.
It is nice to know that there are firms that do go out and make inclusive efforts on behalf of minorities. To be representative the characteristics of my sample population have to match those of the entire target population. In this study, I have to make sure that the right variety of people is interviewed. If the sample is not representative it can be subjected to biases. It could be that with me picking only African Americans and Latinos I risk over-representing these groups while under-representing other minority groups which can be a valid argument.
Further suggestion found in Racially Biased Policing a Principled Response is that data collection helps agencies effectively allocate and manage department resources (p. 117). Furthermore, those who are against and oppose data collection of the phenomenon presumably believe social science is not capable of answering or providing valid answers to questions, meaning some departments aren’t sure the collection of data would benefit them

For example calling someone names because of their weight. Indirect discrimination is harder to recognise. An example of this is a manager may be friendly to one member of staff but rude to another. Positive discrimination is when a decision is made in a persons favour because there is something different about them. For example a job may be advertised for someone with fair skin and red hair.
Affirmative Action is any measure, beyond simple termination of a discriminatory practice, that permits the consideration of race, national origin, sex, or disability, along with other criteria, and which is adopted to provide opportunities to a class of qualified individuals who have either historically or actually been denied those opportunities and/or to prevent the recurrence of discrimination in the future. One reason I support Affirmative Action is because it is only right to treat everyone with equality. Another reason is because, as a citizen of the United States of America, I have the right to be treated fairly just as well as anybody
Education has fundamentally been treated as the customary means of creating a more equal society however for some it has meant equality of opportunity to become uneven whereas for others it is for attaining greater equity in outcomes. Class, gender and ethnic inequalities are perceived as barriers that education has to confront in order to achieve justice in the distribution of opportunities and rewards. Therefore this essay is devoted to a critical philosophical discussion and analysis of educational implication of inclusive pedagogy. From philosophical point of view inclusion refers to a situation where everyone is been given equal opportunities regardless of their race, gender, disability medical or other need, that will consequently allow them an opportunity to share in learning experiences where they will gain knowledge that each individual has value and self-respect, morefurther, ensuring that they all live to the fullest and learn to live together. While inclusive education is all about embracing all, making a commitment to do whatever it takes to
Having a sufficient knowledge of ones cultural needs, could lead to the understanding of effective healthcare of the people; in furtherance of the foregoing leading effective to quality healthcare services. Nurses are expected to practice in a way that is subtle to the sensitivity of culture of the service users, families, communities and team members (The Code, 2015, sec 7.3). Health services show the need for health care organisation to cultivate policies, standards and practices to offer culturally competent care. In becoming a cultural competent in the practice, Cross et al (1989) suggests five absolute necessary aspects that need to be considered. These are: valuing diversity, having the capacity for the cultural self-assessment, being conscious of the dynamics inherent when cultures interact, having an institutionalised cultural knowledge; and lastly, is having to develop an adaptations of services delivery reflecting an understanding of cultural diversity.
