Our Plans and Policies
The purpose of our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) Strategy (2022 - 2026) is to set out how we will advance equality, diversity and inclusion across our services and workforce for the next 4 years. It makes clear our commitment to working with local people, community groups and staff to identify the activities that would make a real difference locally.
To make sure we are actively monitoring progress against our strategic objectives we will implement an annual EDI Action Plan to accompany the Strategy.
The annual EDI Action Plan will be published in Autumn 2022 following a period of consultation with local community groups, local people and our staff. The EDI Action Plan will be updated annually to show progress against objectives.
To help us think practically about how we can deliver better and more accessible services for our customers, and improve the working environment for our staff we use the Equality Framework for Local Government (EFLG) as an assessment tool. The EFLG consists of three levels of performance, 'Developing, Achieving and Excellent' and we have assessed ourselves against the ‘Achieving’ level.
We have aligned our EDI objectives (see bubbles in white) with the EFLG (see bubbles in green).
