Navigating Diversity and Equality: Comparative Analysis of UK and Indian Policies

Sumedha Kataria

Abstract: This article delves into the complex terrain of managing diversity and equal opportunities, drawing a comparative analysis between the United Kingdom and India. In the UK, efforts focus on gender and ethnic equality in the workplace, emphasizing the elimination of discrimination and the promotion of equality through various initiatives, including positive action. In contrast, India?s approach is deeply intertwined with its unique caste system, where discrimination is rooted in social descent. The article explores how India?s diversity stems from its rich history of invasions, cultural assimilations, and religious diversity, leading to current policies that address deep-seated inequalities. It scrutinizes the shift from traditional equal opportunities to managing diversity, highlighting the ethical underpinnings and business rationale behind embracing diversity. The discussion extends to the implementation and impact of diversity policies in both countries, assessing how these approaches address structural and cultural biases, and the ongoing challenge of transforming societal attitudes towards marginalized groups.
