Our equality priorities and objectives

Like other public bodies, the Commission must meet the requirements of the new Public Sector Equality Duty. However, the Commission is unique among public bodies subject to the duty in that equality is our core work. We have therefore identified equality objectives around all the work we do, our employment practices and our ways of working and these are set out in our 2013/14 corporate plan.

These include equality objectives around:

  • Ensuring our change programme is implemented fairly,
  • Fostering an accessible and inclusive working environment for all our staff,
  • Ensuring that our services are accessible and user’s experiences and outcomes are positive, and
  • Promoting equality within our supply chain supporting our suppliers to embed equality and diversity practices within their own organisations and those with whom they work.

The Commission is facing a period of significant change and development as a result of reductions in our resources. As such our equality objectives will be kept under continuous review and adapted to reflect these changes.
