Equality and Diversity
The Equality and Diversity section of the site is a resource for those both internal and external to t2. It aims to give details about what Equality and Diversity means and help you think about your attitudes to others and your ideas of people you meet. We would like you to also think about the attitudes of others around you.
We also aim to let you know what the law says, and what you can do to help yourself and others and be fair to everyone.
We hope that having looked through this part of our website, you will feel that you have more of an understanding of what Equality and Diversity is all about.

Equality Act 2010
The Equality Act 2010 is the law which bans unfair treatment and helps achieve equal opportunities in the workplace and in wider society.
What´s included in the Equality Act?
The act replaced previous anti-discrimination laws with a single act to make the law simpler and to remove inconsistencies. This makes the law easier for people to understand and comply with. The act also strengthened protection in some situations.
The act covers nine protected characteristics, which cannot be used as a reason to treat people unfairly. Every person has one or more of the protected characteristics, so the act protects everyone against unfair treatment. The protected characteristics are:
- Gender reassignment
- Marriage or civil partnership
- Pregnancy and maternity
- Religion or belief
- Sexual orientation
The Equality Act sets out the different ways in which it is unlawful to treat someone, such as direct and indirect discrimination, harassment, victimisation and failing to make a reasonable adjustment for a disabled person.
The act prohibits unfair treatment in the workplace, when providing goods, facilities and services, when exercising public functions, in the disposal and management of premises, in education and by associations (such as private clubs).
