Network briefing: Equality Impact Assessments

The purpose of this briefing is to remind HQN’s members of the value of carrying out Equality Impact Assessments (EqIAs) as risk assessment tools. EqIAs help examine whether different groups of people are, or could be, disadvantaged by particular decisions. The briefing is for board members and senior managers who may commission EqIAs and for staff members who may be asked to carry out EqIAs.
