Consultation on Equality Objectives now Open

30 Oct

Sheffield Council Draft Equality Objectives 2019-2023 

By law the Council is required to set at least one Equality Objective every 4 years.  For 2019-23 we are suggesting that we set 4 objectives, each with a set of 3 more specific aims.  This will help us focus on a number of important areas so we can really make a difference.

Our proposed Equality Objectives are:

  • Strengthen knowledge and understanding of our communities
  • Ensure our workforce reflects the people that we serve
  • Lead the city in celebrating diversity and promoting inclusion
  • Breaking the cycle of inequality and improving life chances

Our Equality Objectives are very important to us as an organisation.  They guide the work we carry out in the city and demonstrate our commitment to challenging inequality and promoting a fair and inclusive Sheffield

Whether you live, work or visit the city, are an individual or an organisation, we would like to hear your views about our draft objectives for 2019-23.

Please complete our short survey, which should take 5-10 minutes. The survey will close on the 22nd November.

Thank you for taking part in our consultation.

Deputy Leader and Cabinet Member for Finance
