The Equality Act 2010: Equality Analysis for Best Practice Workshop
While Equality Analysis (EA) is a requirement for public bodies, it can be a highly effective tool in any sector.
Meaningful EAs are a first base in good ED&I practice. Done in a non-bureaucratic and practical way, they can enable your business to assess and improve its ED&I performance: for example, in attracting & serving diverse customers and in the recruitment, selection, management & development of a diverse and effective workforce.
Our EA with Engagement workshops ensure that 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.

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
Benefits of an EA with Engagement workshop:
- 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.
