Welcome to this third Equality Mainstreaming report, which covers the period April 2017 – April 2019. This is our second full reporting period as New College Lanarkshire following our merger in 2013 / 2014 and we are excited to share some of our highlights with you. In some areas, there is still work to do and, throughout this report, we underline our commitment to an inclusive culture that supports equality and values diversity, across all of our activity.
The Equality Act 2010 outlines nine protected characteristics: Age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation.
Keep up to date with the latest resources to support your understanding and knowledge of Equality and Diversity.
