We have worked closely with employers so that they are more aware of equality and human rights issues. We are encouraging public and private sector employers to adopt workplace policies on mental health and violence against women and domestic abuse.
We have worked with key partners to develop low cost actions employers can take to ensure that staff experiencing violence against women, domestic abuse and sexual violence feel safe and supported. We've also created low cost, common sense actions that businesses can take to ensure staff experiencing domestic abuse feel safe and supported in the workplace.

Is Wales Fairer? highlighted the low employment rates of Muslims in Wales – they are least likely to be working of all faith groups. This is despite the proportion of Muslim adults with a degree being slightly above the Welsh average.
We decided to look into this issue in more detail. We are delighted that many individuals and organisations from the public, private and voluntary sectors have offered work with us.
We have published this summary of our work so far and we are greatly encouraged, and confident, that working together we can find solutions that benefit individuals, businesses and public service.
Along with our digital story we plan to use this learning to raise awareness and to widen the discussion to identify next steps to increasing employment rates of Muslims.
