Sheffield City Council Draft Equality Objectives 2019-2023

Closed 22 Nov 2018

Opened 25 Oct 2018


Our Equality Objectives are very important to us as an organisation.  They guide the work we carry out in the city and demonstrate our commitment to challenging inequality and promoting a fair and inclusive Sheffield.

By law the Council is required to set at least one Equality Objective every 4 years.  For 2019-23 we are suggesting that we set 4 objectives, each with a set of 3 more specific aims.  This will help us focus on a number of important areas so we can really make a difference.

Why We Are Consulting

Our proposed Equality Objectives are:

  • Strengthen knowledge and understanding of our communities
  • Ensure our workforce reflects the people that we serve
  • Lead the city in celebrating diversity and promoting inclusion
  • Breaking the cycle of inequality and improving life chances

Whether you live, work or visit the city, are an individual or an organisation, we would like to hear your views about our draft objectives for 2019-23.

This survey should take 5-10 minutes.

The survey will close on Thursday 22nd November 2018.  We will then consider the responses and use your feedback to inform our final Equality Objectives, which will be published in January 2019.

You can download a full copy of the objectives below. Alternative formats are available upon request.
