BCH equality objectives
Draft Beds, Cambs and Herts equality objectives from April 2020
We will achieve a positive shift in our workplace culture where people, no matter their background and circumstances, feel confident to disclose their protected characteristics.
We will attract, engage, develop and retain a workforce that is representative of the communities it serves.
We will understand our communities by developing effective engagement strategies that enable interaction with diverse groups, fostering strong relations that build trust and confidence.
We will work with our partners to implement strategies to explain, where necessary reduce, and where possible eliminate disparity and enhance public service.
We will understand the impact of our policies and practices on people with different protected characteristics by conducting equality analysis and take steps to remove or minimise disadvantages.
