Equalities Framework Evaluation
In November 2008 the Mayor launched a consultation process to inform the development of his new Equality Framework – Equal Life Chances for All. It aims to achieve equal life chances for all and proposes an approach that brings Londoners together, rather than dividing them.
The consultation in winter 2008/09 included web-based feedback, roundtable discussions, focus groups and meetings with stakeholders and the London Assembly at City Hall to stimulate debate and generated a large number of responses, with the majority welcoming this new approach.
The evaluation document outlines the findings from the consultation. There were 72 responses in total representing a wide range of stakeholders from London boroughs, public, private, voluntary and community sectors.
The State of Equality in London
The second State of Equality in London Report highlights the progress made against the high-level indicators identified in the first report, and provides important insights into patterns and trends of inequality and discrimination across London as a whole.
It provides important insights into patterns and trends of inequality and discrimination across London as a whole, and can help policy makers make more informed judgements about developing appropriate policies to deal with them. We have used this evidence to develop the Mayor of London’s Equal Life Chances for All equality framework. It has helped us to identify the priority outcomes and measure the progress we want to see for London and Londoners. It has also helped us to identify what is being measured that can tell us whether we are seeing the progress that we are seeking.
