EDF Seminar 6: Delivering equality: the case for a single outcomes focussed equality duty

This seminar considered whether the framing of the existing equality duties and arrangements for implementation are optimal for delivering equality outcomes, and the implications of replacing the existing duties with a single positive duty to promote equality covering age, religion and belief and sexual orientation in addition to the existing grounds.

Speakers at the seminar were Sarah Spencer, Chair of the Equality and Diversity Forum, and Professor Sandra Fredman from Oxford University.

The EDF would like to thank the Practical Law Company for hosting the seminar.
