Just explain how you naturally incorporate it in practice. Give them examples. You might ensure, for example, that people with speciial educational needs or disabilities are able to access education and local facilities. This could be via practical help in getting them there or by challenging people's attitudes and not tolerating discrimination.

The care standards act has standards in there relating to

Equality- Protecting the dignity of service users (respecting their privacy etc), ensuring staff are fully trained and supervised (their are specific requirements set out for this).

Diversity- There are standards around recognising service users different needs (these could be religous, communication needs etc).

There is lots more in there but i can't remember it all off the top of my head. You should have a copy in your workplace. It's indexed so you will be able to find what you need easily. If not then come back to me and i will have refreshed my memory by then.
