equality impact assessments

An Equality Impact Assessment is a means of equality proofing policies, processes and practices to ensure that they don't unwittingly favour or discriminate against groups as defined in the Equality Act 2010.

As a public sector organisation we're expected to demonstrate best practice and are committed to looking beyond compliance to continued improvement. Ideally, an impact assessment should be completed in the development stage of new policies and processes to ensure that any equality feedback can be included in good time.

When changing procedures, processes or policies it is also a good idea to complete an impact assessment. For questions about Equality Impact Assessments, please contact: equality@leedsbeckett.ac.uk.
