Equality and Diversity

We believe diversity is great for Bournemouth, and we have commitments to equal opportunities. However, we know policies may affect our communities in different ways

Gender Pay Gap

Employers in Great Britain with more than 250 staff are required by law to publish Gender Pay Gap figures annually on theirs and a government website

Equality and Diversity

We want everyone to have equal opportunities. Our Equality and Diversity policy explains our commitments, supported by our "Better for All" strategy

Diversity Monitoring

We use diversity monitoring to learn about Bournemouth's communities, and to fix any problems they may be facing.

Equality Act 2010

It is against the law to treat someone unkindly because of their gender, race, sexual orientation or disability.

We challenge assumptions that policies affect everyone in the same way. There may be equality issues that are being overlooked.

Our Equality Duties

We follow the Public Sector Equality Duty under the Equality Act 2010, to protect individuals from unfair treatment.

Service Equality Action Plans

Service Equality Action Plans improve equal opportunities in our service areas.
