Welsh Government logoWelsh Government want your views on proposals for equality objectives as part of the Strategic Equality Action Plan 2020–2024.

The consultation seeks your views on the proposals for the Welsh Government’s 2020 – 2024 Equality Objectives, whose purpose are to strengthen Welsh Governments due regard for the three aims or ‘needs’, as outlined in legislation, of the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED).

The three aims are the need to:

  • Eliminate unlawful discrimination, harassment and victimisation and other conduct prohibited by the Equality Act.
  • Advance equality of opportunity between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.
  • Foster good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.

The consultation is now open for comments until 19th November 2019.

I encourage all those with an interest in promoting equality and human rights in Wales to consider the proposals here carefully and respond to this consultation. 

Jane Hutt AM, Deputy Minister and Chief Whip, with portfolio responsibility for Equalities
