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, and education and training providers 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 grounds for discrimination which are specifically prohibited by the Non-Discrimination Act.

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