    It provides descriptions and definitions; provides ways to assess the current needs of diverse communities and identify gaps in services, policies and practice; and makes suggestions on how to fill these gaps. 

    The toolkit will help companies:

    • Enhance existing diversity assessments and increase awareness of diversity issues and needs;
    • Embed the principle of diversity throughout their service and influence strategic planning at all levels;
    • Develop good practice;
    • Meet legislative requirements;
    • Assess current performance, to identify any barriers preventing progress and to provide advice and guidance on how to overcome these; and
    • Enhance monitoring and data collection mechanisms to highlight the needs of different communities.
