Equality Schemes

The Library’s Race, Disability and Gender Equality Schemes and its commitment to the Northern Ireland Equality Scheme are described here. The Library is preparing for a Single Equality Scheme and so consequently there is a Unified Generic framework for the Library’s Race, Disability and Gender Equality Schemes. Specific areas for these strands of diversity such as consultations or action plans are separately displayed.
