      Equality Analysis


      Equality Analysis

      Equality Analysis is a systematic analysis of a policy, strategy, service, system, project, plans or any activity that involves people.

      Predictive tool for determining equality

      It is a predictive tool we use, before anything is implemented, to:

      • evaluate the potential future impact of a new policy/procedure
      • changes in the way services are delivered
      • introduction of a new service or closure of a service

      Asking the right questions

      Equality analysis is designed to determine the extent of any differential or adverse impact on under-represented groups. In other words, it should ask questions such as whether any group is being:

      • discriminated against
      • placed at a disadvantage as a result of the policy or function
      The under-represented groups as defined by the Equality Act 2010.

      Considering alternatives to adverse impact

      If there is an adverse impact, alternative policies must be considered in order to:

      • promote equality of opportunity
      • eliminate discrimination
      • promote good relations among diverse groups

      It should also be used as a tool to support continuous improvement across the University.
