What we do

The Government Equalities Office (GEO) is responsible for equality strategy and legislation across government. We work to take action on the government’s commitment to remove barriers to equality and help to build a fairer society, leading on issues relating to women, sexual orientation and transgender equality.

GEO works with the Department for Culture, Media & Sport.
