How to: Positive discrimination or positive action?

We all want to ensure that as wide a group of people as possible benefit from opportunities that we offer.  But what are we allowed to do to ensure we are genuinely inclusive, without discriminating against other groups? What is the difference between positive discrimination and positive action?

This interactive session, Ruth Kapadia aims to answer your questions and leave you feeling more confident about what is, and isn’t possible.
