Equality & Diversity Monitoring

The SRA has announced that firms will be able to report their diversity data from the week commencing 17 July 2017 and will have a four week time period to do so. Remember also you have an obligation under the Code of Conduct, outcome O(2.6),  to publish your data, but only where appropriate. For example it would not be appropriate if, by publishing, you identify an individual member of staff.

Now would probably be a good time to review your Equality and Diversity policy.
