Diversity Working Party

  The Diversity Working Party was set up with a request to, following training, further consider the matter of a Diversity Policy. The Equality Act 2010 allows for positive action in general for the advancement of equality. The Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED) requires a Council to have ‘due regard’ to three aims, as part of its decision-making process.  The three aims are:
  • Eliminating unlawful discrimination harassment and victimisation;
  • Advancing equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not;
  • Fostering good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not. Fostering good relations is about tackling prejudice and promoting understanding between people from different groups.
Council has acknowledged its responsibilities in this regard, and has in place appropriate policies related to employment, and engagement with the community It was nonetheless proposed that a working party be set up to look at policies used by other Councils.
