To consider the Equality of Opportunity statement.
Trustees considered a draft Equality of Opportunity Statement for the Trust and the following points were made:
“COLAT People, Equality and Inclusion Committee provides strategic direction on equality and inclusion, including its consistent implementation by the Board of Trustees, and ensures compliance with the Public Sector Equality Duty.”
In response to a suggestion from another Trustee, the Chair confirmed that the Equal Opportunities Statement would be developed over time to become a more personalised statement of the Trust’s aims but at present it served as a clear statement of the Trust’s vision and commitment in the area of equal opportunities.
RESOLVED, that the Equality of Opportunity Statement be agreed, subject to the above amendment.
