Under the Scottish specific duties of the Equality Act 2010, universities and colleges in Scotland were required to publish a set of equality outcomes in April 2013. Your institution reported on progress in 2015 and is then required to publish a new set of outcomes by 30 April 2017.

ECU has provided new guidance to assist your institution in setting its new outcomes. By following a three step process, this briefing will help Scottish universities and colleges to investigate, identify and disseminate new equality outcomes.

Areas covered include:

  • Investigating equality issues
  • Setting equality outcomes
    • Reviewing previous outcomes
    • Gathering evidence
    • Prioritising outcomes
    • Formulating new outcomes
  • Aligning equality outcomes with institutional and sector drivers
  • Disseminating equality outcomes
