Review of the Public Sector Equality Duty in Wales

In 2014, the Equality and Human Rights Commission (EHRC) in Wales published a research report and monitoring reports showing the extent of progress in relation to the Public Sector Equality Duty (PSED).

These reports show that:

  • The PSED is working effectively in Wales and should be retained.
  • The PSED is a catalyst for change. All organisations have been able to demonstrate how the PSED supports work to eliminate unlawful discrimination, promote equality and foster good relations.
  • The PSED is being used to influence and scrutinise the way public bodies behave.
  • The Welsh Government can enhance its leadership role to ensure the PSED delivers stronger outcomes.
