Our decision making

The Equality Impact Assessment process is used by the Welsh Government to ensure that departments consider the effects on equality when making decisions.

It is important that in the work that we do, we take every opportunity to promote equality and inclusive outcomes for all the citizens of Wales.

As we develop policies, strategies, action plans and practices, we are committed to assessing the impact of this decision making on equality.  This is carried out through the Equality Impact Assessment process.  It ensures that our efforts actively contribute to an environment that is free from discrimination.

As with all public authorities, the Welsh Government must set out the steps it will take to meet the legal requirements of the general and specific equality duties for race and disability.  Part of this is about assessing the impact that our policies and actions may have on the people of Wales.

These assessments are published and are available to view on this website.  If you would like further information about the Equality Impact Assessment process, or would like to let us know what you think about it, please contact us at:
