Your equality policy reflects your commitment to equal opportunities. It is your promise to treat all employees, and potential employees, fairly and considerately. To make sure that your promise becomes a reality we recommend that you:
- Review your existing equality policy and action plan – or write a new policy if you don't have one.
- Monitor how the policy is working in practice – this is the critical stage in delivering equality in the workplace.
- Take action, where it is needed, to address inequality or promote diversity.
This guide takes you though each of these stages. It also has a useful question and answer section, along with a sample equality policy and monitoring form.
