Describe how equality and diversity is monitored within your chosen place of work / learning.
You should monitor equality and diversity to examine if your equality policy is working effectively.
If you find that it isn't working, ie you find that your workforce is not as diverse as it should be, [ [ you will need to find out why and take action to improve the effectiveness of the policy.
For example, if you find that non-white people are underrepresented in your workforce, you could
take positive action, eg include text in job advertisements encouraging members of minority ethnic groups to apply - see the page in this guide on promoting equality and diversity.
What is monitoring?
Monitoring involves gathering information on the diversity of your potential recruits or existing employees. This data can be compared and analysed against data about other groups of employees in your company, jobseekers in your local community and the national labour market.
It is unlikely that you will find exactly the same proportion of men and women or other groups. Monitoring is about looking for significant differences between groups or identifying trends over periods of time and then finding out why. source: ? ... ? Equality and diversity ] ]
