Equality, Diversity and Opportunity Management: Costs, Strategies and Leadership presents a comprehensive overview and analysis of the processes of governance, leadership, policy and strategy formulation, decision-making, practical and financial management, and real-world implementation of the Equality, Diversity, Opportunity, and Discrimination (or
Anti-Discrimination) (EDOD) Agenda.
The book describes the leadership, management, and cost of the implementation of the Agenda for Equality, Diversity, Opportunity, and Discrimination (or Anti-Discrimination) (EDOD) in three mandatory areas. These are:
• Employment and the Workplace;
• Service Provision;
• Public Sector, Healthcare, Neighbourhood and Community Management.
The book is strongly orientated towards issues (i) of governance; (ii) of personal, corporate, vicarious and leadership responsibility; and (iii) of implementation, cost management, and delivery at the levels of directorship, chief executive, trusteeship, management process, administration, operational procedure, and staff performance assessment.
The book deals directly, professionally, and in a non-opinionated manner with challenging (and sometimes unpopular, inconvenient or unwanted) issues of equality and inequality, diversity, a lack of opportunity or social mobility, and the widespread incidence of discrimination. The work suggests practical, Reasonable or Proportionate means by which to deal with such issues, whether at the level of governance, leadership, policy and strategy formulation, the incurring of unnecessary cost or damage to reputation, or at the level of operational and departmental management procedure and process.
The book is written at the same time from scholarly, objective, applied, “hands-on”, and practitioner based perspectives. Issue of what may be categorised as Reasonable or Proportionate solutions to EDOD issues are given extensive treatment.
