Equality Impact Assessments

Enhance the skills and confidence of your staff

Equality Impact Assessments (EIA) are a legal requirement laid down by the public sector equalities legal framework to prevent discrimination in the performance of public functions and to maximise opportunities to promote equality.

The public sector duties require all public authorities and private companies providing public services to demonstrate their arrangements for:

  • Monitoring policies for any adverse impact.
  • Gathering information on the effects of policies.
  • Assessing and consulting on the likely impact of proposed policies on equality.
  • Training staff in relation to their duties.
  • Publishing the results of consultation, monitoring and assessments.
  • Reviewing and reporting progress on equality.

Integrated, cyclical EIAs are a remarkably effective tool through which organisations can benchmark progress in matching their policies' actual equality outcomes to their intended outcomes.

EIAs help ensure that staff and customers are not discriminated against by how an organisation operates and help public authorities ensure that policies serve to advance equality and tackle discrimination.

Our e-Learning programme clearly demonstrates the fundamental business benefits of effective and compliant EIAs through an engaging series of stages, each accompanied by expert comment and guidance.

Part 1: Understanding EIAs – A comprehensive overview of the process; the key drivers and benefits, why and who should do it and sign it off; who should be involved and consulted; when it should be done; what needs to be impact assessed; the criteria for quality assuring EIAs; monitoring and review processes.

Part 2: Process Development and Screening – This part is designed to enhance understanding of how to conduct an effective EIA, pre-policy development and screening, scoping the EIA; the importance of effective data collecting; involving and consulting relevant stakeholders; assessing impact; action planning, report and sign off; and publication and review.
