Equality Impact Assessment – Foundation Level
An equality impact assessment (EIA) will help you analyze your policies and practices to make sure they do not discriminate against or disadvantage people. EIAs provide an effective means of enabling organizations to measure their progress in matching their policies’ actual equality outcomes to their aims. They can also help to ensure that staff and customers are not discriminated against by the way in which an organization operates, and can help public authorities ensure that their practices and policies work to promote equality and tackle discrimination.
Produced in partnership with Ionann Management Consultants and combining dramatized scenarios with insight from leading equality experts, this course provides an introduction to EIAs and sets out their importance in promoting equality and diversity.
This course will give a better understanding of:
- what an EIA is
- how to plan an EIA;
- the key legal and policy drivers for EIAs
- the importance and key aspects of stakeholder engagement.
