It's conventional for businesses to say that they're an "equal opportunities employer" or that they "comply with the Equality Act" as a way of telling potential applicants that their business is a nice place to work.

We are, and we do. But that's really only committing to an absence of discrimination, and for us that's not enough.  Our commitment is not only to eliminate and avoid discrimination, but to create an environment where our differences can be celebrated and valued.
