King’s uses Equality Analysis (EA) to systematically analyse the potential impacts that new policies, practices, projects, or services might have on different groups within the King’s community. EAs are also sometimes called Equality Impact Assessments.
EAs are part of the planning process for all policies, practices, projects or services, and are used to identify possible consequences on the King’s community, especially impact on groups which are likely to face disadvantage and underrepresentation.
For policies, practices, projects and services within King’s, we need to make sure that our decisions do not unintentionally discriminate and disadvantage groups of staff with protected characteristics. EAs explore the possible unintended consequences of changes on our King’s community.
This page provides you with guidance on how to use an EA to strengthen positive impact and mitigate or justify adverse impact, as well as case studies to help you understand how an EA might apply to your area.
