Equality impact assessments
Seldom talked about and not much read about, all public sector organisations should be conducting EIAs. Otherwise known as Equality Impact Assessments.
EIAs, a statutory duty for public sector organisations, are enshrined in the Public Sector Equality Duties (came into force in 2011).
EIAs are all about striving for the elimination of discrimination, harassment and victimisation. They were brought in with a view to helping organisations identify what practices/behaviours might be affecting different groups of people working in the organisation and different ways to achieve greater equality. A key aim therefore is to ensure that equality considerations are reflected in the design of policies and the delivery of services.
