The Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) is Britain’s national equality body and has been awarded an ‘A’ status as a National Human Rights Institution (NHRI) by the United Nations. We operate across Scotland, England and Wales. It’s job is to help make Britain fairer. They do this by safeguarding and enforcing the laws that protect people’s rights to fairness, dignity and respect. As a statutory non-departmental public body established by the Equality Act 2006, the Commission operates independently. It aims to be an expert and authoritative organisation that is a centre of excellence for evidence, analysis and equality and human rights law. It also aspires to be an essential point of contact for policy makers, public bodies and business. The EHRC is currently consulting on its next Strategic Plan 2022-25 which will set its priorities for the work it will do in the next period. You can find more detail on the proposed themes in the plan at the following link EHRC Strategic Plan 2022-25 Have your say.
The economy and the workplace is a key focus for the work of the Commission. It is keen to engage with key stakeholders in business to get their important input on how they can deliver their plan and in particular on the following themes:• Upholding rights and equality in health and social care• Fairness in a changing workplace • Artificial intelligence and emerging digital technologies
This is an excellent opportunity for IoD members to learn more from the EHRC about their role as it relates to the economy and the workplace, as well as influencing its work over the coming years.
