Answer for Stonewall Equality Index - Public Sector Equality Duty training

Answered By: 
The Mayor

Public Sector Equality Duty training was launched on 13 December 2013 as part of the one day "Dignity and Inclusion" induction session. As of 11 July 2014, the session is now a stand-alone 2.5h workshop, targeted at all staff once they have been at the GLA for at least 6 months. This ensures that staff have a full understanding of their role and are able to see how the public sector duty will apply in practice relative to their role.
