Equality and diversity
Equality and Diversity - April 2013
An enabling framework for treating everyone fairly and valuing diversity - " Equal citizen - different need "
We see equality and diversity as part of everything we do. It is not a separate
activity or just the responsibility of designated officers. Equally, we do
not want equality and diversity to become buried amongst our activities, we want
this work on equality and diversity to be visible.
We include all nine legally identified equality areas in the framework, as that makes sense in terms of practical delivery. At the same
time, we will look for and assess progress across these separate areas.
- Gender Reassignment
- Marriage and Civil Partnership
- Pregnancy and Maternity
- Religion and Belief
- Sexual Orientation
- Sex (formerly Gender)
Our commitment to you
- We believe in treating everyone fairly and see the diversity of our community and workforce as a real strength.
- We want to build strong communities with a sense of togetherness, and we want to tackle disadvantage.
- We want everyone to be able to realise their potential and to benefit from the cultural, social, economic and civic vitality of our district.
- We want to meet people’s needs as best we can.
- We realise that treating people fairly does not necessarily mean treating everyone as if they are the same.
This commitment applies to our work as an employer, a service provider, a contractor of services, a funding body, and in our community leadership role.
