Diversity and Inclusion

Presiding Officer Rosemary Butler AM holding an Amnesty International placard at Cardiff Mardi Gras

The Assembly Commission is committed to valuing diversity, promoting inclusion and addressing inequalities both as an employer and service provider. In these pages, we set out our diversity and inclusion vision and values, why we have them and how we aim to achieve them.

Diversity and Inclusion Strategy

The Diversity and Inclusion Strategy 2016-21 sets out how we intend to realise our Diversity and Inclusion vision.

To accompany our Strategy, we are developing an action plan with teams across our organisation which will align with their service area plans. We are using the results of our consultation and other involvement activities to inform the action plan which will be published here when it is finalised.

Equality Impact Assessments

We undertake equality impact assessments in order to ensure that the policies, practices and services we design are fair and inclusive. This approach also helps us to meet the requirements of the public sector equality duties. We will publish our equality impact assessments here on this page, as and when they become available. They are also active documents subject to ongoing review.

It also monitors, analyses, and publishes workforce, recruitment and pay diversity data which you can access below. Any patterns, trends or other issues identified within our data sets will help the Assembly Commission to prioritise its work in relation to diversity and inclusion.
