Equality impact assessment

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

An equality impact assessment (EqIA) is a process designed to ensure that a policy, project or scheme does not unlawfully discriminate against any protected characteristic.[1]

The EqIA process aims to prevent discrimination against people who are members of a protected category.[1] The Equality Act 2010 defines 9 protected characteristics:

  • Race
  • Religion or Belief
  • Disability
  • Sex
  • Gender Reassignment
  • Sexual Orientation
  • Age
  • Marriage or Civil Partnership
  • Pregnancy and Maternity

Within the UK, EqIAs is a means of ensuring that the public sector equality duty is met.[2] On 19 November 2012, then Prime Minister David Cameron announced that EqIAs would no longer be undertaken for government decisions.[3]
