EQUALITY IMPACT ASSESSMENT

An Equality Impact Assessment is a formal consistent process that is used to consider the impact on protected groups in terms of adverse impact or discrimination. This is important because most organisational change projects have both intended and unintended consequences.
Our EIA workshop helps relevant teams to embed equality, diversity and inclusion best practice into their service day to day delivery. This ensures they can meet their requirements under UK legislation, including the Equality Act 2010, as well as client contracts, service level agreements and adhere to internal policies.
This training event starts at the very beginning and takes delegates step by step through all the key elements of the Equality Impact Assessment process and how it monitors any adverse impacts on equality.
The session focuses on "how to do it".
We will demystify the EA process, assume little or no prior learning, and focus on giving delegates time to debate issues, ask questions, and then put into practice what they learn.
