JOHANNESBURG - The DA is hailing resolutions adopted on the first day of its policy conference as a shift away from apartheid policies.
The party says it's committed to an equitable future and opposes quotas based on race and gender.
The conference wraps up on Sunday.
The DA continues with their call for a united South Africa, saying "each individual is unique and not a racial or gender envoy".
The party's manifesto encourages equal opportunities for all.
DA's head of policy Gwen Ngwenya said the issue of diversity remains critical within the organisation.
"We absolutely bind ourselves and commit to the idea of diversity and that diversity means a variety of things.
"Diversity of experiences, of thought, of talent, of knowledge in an organisation, is so incredibly important.
"It's that diversity that acts as a bulwark against any kind of uniformity of thought and rigidness in an organisation. What you cannot do is reduce diversity to being a matter of demographic representativity and saying that there has to be a specific quota of each race in a particular organisation," she said.
