Many people may think they already hold an accepting and open view of diversity and treat everyone equally. Often, high-level conversations within healthcare organisations are prefaced with statements such as: 'As far as I am concerned, people can do and live how they want,' and, 'I don’t have a problem with people from the LGBTI community'.
