Quick Reference

A public commitment to equal opportunity made by an organization. Many organizations will place statements on job advertisements, such as ‘we are working towards equal opportunities’. Such statements are easy to make but much harder to put into practice, which means that they are often treated with scepticism by potential applicants. Some organizations also make statements about equal opportunities in their annual reports, reviewing the progress they have made in the previous year and outlining their intentions for the next year. [See Opportunity Now.]
