As a public authority, the CNPA must meet the requirements of the Equality Act 2010, which harmonises and replaces previous equalities legislation. In terms of the Public Sector Equality Duty, every 4 years the CNPA is required 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 2017 – 2021 has pulled this information together into one document, which contains the following: –
Once this has been done, the CNPA is required to report at 2 year intervals. This report should contain an update on mainstreaming equalities; a progress report on the Equality Outcomes; and updated Employee Information. Organisations with 20 or more staff are also required to publish pay gap information.

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.
