The findings demonstrate that although most researchers believe that they are recognised for the quality of their work, and feel that their unique characteristics and background are valued, discrimination and inappropriate behaviour at work are still commonplace. If you’ve not personally experienced discrimination, you may not be aware that it exists.

Minority groups are still experiencing discrimination despite the drive for equality across the board.
