Equality And Diversity
Bristol City Council recognises the diversity of Bristol’s communities is a huge asset that should be valued and seen as one of the City’s great strengths. To this end, the council will consult with people from the diverse communities of Bristol, including staff, to help shape our policies and practices and the services we deliver. The council will fulfil requirements of the Equality Act 2010 to ensure equality of opportunity, eradication of discrimination and promotion of good relations between all the communities of Bristol.
The council will work to ensure that our workforce reflects the diverse communities we serve and that every colleague is treated fairly during the whole of their working life. We are committed to achieving equality by reducing discrimination in employment and service delivery on the grounds of the characteristics protected by equalities legislation and we will also strive to ensure that people are not disadvantaged for other reasons not covered by the Equality Act. This policy therefore applies to people who are looked after by the council, those with responsibilities as a carer, disabled people, people who are lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender and those who are married or in a civil partnership, it applies to men and women, people who hold and those who do not hold a religion or belief. The policy includes tackling discrimination on account of age, economic or social background, pregnancy or maternity status, race or ethnic background or any other ground that cannot be shown to be justified.
