Our strategic plan for 2022 to 2025

1. About the survey

We are conducting a consultation to gather feedback on our strategic plan for 2022 to 2025. This survey is one of the ways that we are gathering feedback. 

We will analyse your responses and use them to help us understand our stakeholders’ views on our strategic plan.

There are 10 sets of questions in this survey. The first two sets of questions ask about who you are and whether you are happy for us to stay in touch with you.

The rest of the questions ask you to share your views on each of the themes highlighted in our draft strategic plan for 2022 to 2025.

How we will handle your information

The Equality and Human Rights Commission undertakes research as part of its statutory duties.

All information will be stored in line with our privacy notice and used only for the purposes of this research.

We are collecting this information under our statutory powers and we may publish a report of our research, however any information you provide will be anonymised in our published report and you will not be identified in it.
How your responses will inform our work

The Public Sector Equality Duty is part of the Equality Act 2010 and all public bodies have to meet it. When carrying out their work, they must take into account the need to:
  • eliminate discrimination
  • advance equality of opportunity
  • foster good relations between groups sharing protected characteristics
We regulate the Public Sector Equality Duty and the Equality Act. As a public body, we also have to meet the requirements.

The law requires some public bodies, including us, to set equality objectives to advance the aims of the duty. Unlike many other public bodies, our key role is to advance the aims of the Public Sector Equality Duty.

The outcomes we are looking for in our strategic plan will also form our equality objectives, and the feedback we receive from this public consultation will influence them.

We will publish our revised equality objectives at the same time as our new plan, and we will share updates on progress in our annual reports.
