The Cairngorms National Park Authority is committed to promoting equality as an employer and through the work it does.
As a public authority, the CNPA must meet the requirements of the Equality Act 2010, which harmonises and replaces previous equalities legislation. The Public Sector Equality Duty requires the CNPA to develop a set of equality outcomes, mainstream equality, gather employee information, review procurement procedures, develop a board succession plan, and publish these materials. It also requires the Authority to undertake equality impact assessments on projects
The Equality Mainstreaming and Outcome report has pulled this information together into one document, which contains the following: –
The CNPA’s projects and activities are impact assessed to ensure that they do not discriminate or have any negative effects on equality groups, but also to identify ways to promote equality. Inclusive Cairngorms, an advisory forum to CNPA, plays a key role in this process, ensuring our projects and activities are as accessible as possible.
