Equality Analysis with Engagement
While Equality Analysis (EA) is a requirement for public bodies, it can be a highly effective tool in any sector. EA enables your business to improve its performance in attracting & serving customers and in recrtuiment, selection, management & development of your people.
Our EA with Engagement workshop ensures Equality Analysis is more than a “tick-box” paper exercise: it equips participants to involve customers and staff in assessing and improving performance in equality and inclusion.
For all businesses, this positions you to attract and retain talent, remove barriers to performance and engage the widest possible range of customers. For public agencies this is an essential tool to demonstrate ‘due regard’ in relation to the Public Sector Equality Duty.
Equality Analysis makes use of stakeholder feedback and input, monitoring data and knowledge of your population. If you have your own EA (or Equality Impact Assessment) forms, we can make use of these. Alternatively, we can offer you an easy-to-follow Equality Academy EA template.
Our workshop will help your people to:
- Confidently carry out EA in easy steps, conducting it in an efficient and consistent manner
- Use EA as part of an integrated approach, aligned with your business’s vision and values
- Engage staff, customers and other stakeholders (eg Board members, Councillors) across all the protected characteristics in EA consultation, involvement and participation
- Assist public agencies to apply good practice in relation to the completion of EA documentation across each of the protected characteristics in line with the Equality Act 2010, the Public Sector Equality Duty and Equality & Human Rights Commission guidance
