Equality and diversity
Equality is relevant to us all. Addressing discrimination and promoting equality are everyone?s core business. We want a West Lothian in which all people and communities have a say in their future and an equal opportunity for health, safety, education, fulfilling work, and a high quality of life. West Lothian Council has published three equality schemes - one each on race, disability and gender - and these schemes reflect our commitment to promoting equality and eliminating discrimination as well as fulfilling our statutory duties under legislation.
The key focus of the equality function of the Policy and Equality Team is to support and advise council services on the requirements of equality legislation and internal policies and procedures related to equality. In addition, the function promotes the development of best practice around both equality and diversity issues across the organisation, with a view to mainstreaming the agenda into everything that we do as a council.
