   schema:description "Most people have a genuine desire to think and behave fairly. Many, however, regard the subject of equal opportunities with a mixture of trepidation and bafflement. The authors of this book have set out straightforward procedures, relevant to all types of situation, that demonstrate how simple it is to behave with fairness, courtesy and sensitivity to all - regardless of colour, gender, sexuality, disability or religion. Whether you're an employee, manager, teacher, trainer, nurse, civil servant, or simply the man or woman in the street, you need to know the issues. This book is designed to be practical, realistic and useable in the real world. It will help you check your own behaviour and attitudes for fairness; introduce you to the most important issues; give you information about racism, sexism, disability, sexuality and religion; raise your awareness of your own views; provide you with 'fair treatment' skills; and explode some of the common myths which dog the subject. The book can be 'dipped-into' for the issues which concern you most, or read as a comprehensive guide. It includes objectives, 'pauses-for-thought' and a summary of UK legislation and agencies. It will prove an illuminating and valuable resource for trainers, managers, HRM staff, teachers, lecturers, and anyone with an interest in equality of opportunity."@en ;
