Decision Maker: Leader of the Council
Decision status: Recommendations Approved
Is Key decision?: No
Is subject to call in?: Yes
The Cabinet Member approved the establishment of a Cabinet working group to oversee our commitment to Equalities, Diversity, Disability and Inclusion.
This recommendation is a result of a commitment made by the Leader of the Council at the Council meeting on 23 June 2021. At this meeting Cllr Fitzgerald requested that Officers set up an Equalities, Diversity, Disability and Inclusion working group.
The alternative is to retain the status quo whereby consideration of our commitment to equalities sits with Cabinet, Scrutiny Committees and with Officers. The establishment of this new working group will strengthen these existing arrangements and will provide an opportunity for our policy and practice to be challenged and for us to have an overview of our work in this important area.
