Report on Land Registry’s progress between 1 April 2015 and 31 March 2016 in creating a diverse workforce.
Land Registry is required under Section 149 of the Equality Act 2010 (the public sector equality duty), and the Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties) Regulations 2011, to publish annually information to demonstrate our compliance with the Public Sector Equality Duty.
The Public Sector Equality Duty requires public authorities to:
- eliminate discrimination, harassment and victimisation and any other conduct that is prohibited by or under the Act
- advance equality of opportunity between people who share a relevant protected characteristic and people who do not share it
- foster good relations between people who share a relevant protected characteristic and those who do not share it
We recognise the benefits in collecting equality information in order to understand the impact our policies and practices may potentially have on people with protected characteristics. In addition to collecting equality information across the protected characteristics, we also collect data in relation to working patterns.
This report provides aggregated information relating to our employees and provides a benchmark which enables us to measure progress in the future and identify priority areas for further research and action. It shows how we carry out our statutory duty to promote and monitor equalities.
