Equality and diversity
How we promote equality and diversity, the organisations that we work with and our legal responsibilities.
Our legal responsibilities
We are required under Section 149 of the Equality Act 2010 and the Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties) Regulations 2011 to publish information, at least annually, to demonstrate our compliance with the general equality duty.
Information we publish
Our Equality Information Report 2014 provides information relating to our employees and, where possible, service users. It also provides information on how we have monitored and promoted equality and diversity over the last 12 months and our improvement plans for 2015.
In order to ensure our services are provided equitably, are equally accessible to all and appropriately serve the needs of our staff and our customers, we carry out equality impact assessments.
The following staff networks contribute towards our diversity goals:
- lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGB&T)
- disability (DEN)
- ethnic minority (BAME)
- straight allies
Our staff networks come together as the Diversity Working Group, which works on diversity issues affecting Land Registry employees and customers.
All networks are supported by the Diversity team and have the backing of our Diversity Committee and Board Diversity Champions.
Organisations we work with
Our membership of the following organisations has helped us to develop our diversity plans:
- Business Disability Forum
- Employers Network for Equality and Inclusion (Enei)
- Think, Act, Report
- Departmental Trade Union Side (DTUS)
We were listed as one of Stonewall’s top 100 employers in 2014 and received ENEI’s Large Employer of the Year award in 2012.
