Equality planning ABC

Equality planning is a tool for promoting an equal and non-discriminatory organisational culture. This website will provide your organisation with tools for building a truly effective equality plan.

Under the Non-Discrimination Act, authorities, employers, education and training providers, and organisers and service providers of early childhood education and care are required to assess and promote equality in their activities.

In promoting equality, they must consider a person’s ethnic origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, religion and other discrimination grounds that are specifically prohibited under the Non-Discrimination Act.

The purpose of equality promotion is to ensure that everybody genuinely has equal opportunities to use services provided by the authorities, to access education and training, to advance their career and to attend early childhood education and care.
