Strategic Plan Consultation Events

On 27th October 2015 we launched our Strategic Plan consultation for the period 2016-19. The Commission is required under the equality Act 2006 to consult on and publish a strategic plan every three years.
We want to hear how our draft strategic objectives resonate with members of our Equality and Human Rights Exchange Network members and those from the third sector and how we can work together to move the equality and human rights agenda forward in Wales. We are interested in your views on the Strategic Plan and what you see as the most helpful role for the Equality and Human Rights Commission in Wales.
