About this topic

We are responsible for the successful delivery of key provisions under the Equality Act 2010 and in particular the public sector specific equality duties for Wales. This includes leading the Government's work in setting equality objectives that will make a tangible difference to the lives of the people in Wales.

Setting the objectives includes collecting and analysing evidence, engaging with organisations and people, as well as equality impact assessment.

Our priorities include:

  • Successful implementation of the Welsh public sector specific equality duties that promote equality of opportunity, eliminate discrimination, harassment and victimisation, and advance good relations between people
  • Fulfilment of the Government of Wales Act 2006 duty to pay due regard to the principle that there should be equality of opportunity for all people.
  • Working towards greater community cohesion and inclusion
  • Implementation of the Equality Act 2010 and the International Conventions, and delivery of the Equality Annual Report and Welsh Ministers' Report on equality and inclusion
