The issue of equal opportunities has a high profile in Europe. It is, however, a culturally bound term, having different connotations in different countries. The European Community has, until recent often traumatic events have raised new problems in the public consciousness, restricted its view to the removal of discrimination between men and women. From the British side of the English Channel such an approach seems to miss important areas of equal opportunities for disabled people and, particularly, for people from the ‘ethnic minority communities’. In this chapter we take a more Anglicised approach, addressing all three areas, even if in order to ensure comparability, we will put greater emphasis on equality measures for women. In line with the theme of this book, and the source of our data, our focus is on the policies and practices of employing organisations.
