Equality commitment

We are committed to equality

We are helping to create a successful economy in Northern Ireland which provides equal opportunities for all citizens. We strive to meet our responsibilities across the spectrum of government policy relating to equality, the Lifetime Opportunities - Anti-Poverty and Social Inclusion Strategy and human rights.

Invest NI complies with Section 75 of the Northern Ireland Act 1998. This requires us to work in accordance with the principles of equality of opportunity between:

  • Men and women generally.
  • Persons with a disability and persons without.
  • Persons with dependants and persons without.
  • Persons of different religious belief, political opinion, racial group, age, marital status or sexual orientation.

You can download an executive summary of our Equality Scheme (PDF). It is also available in alternative formats including:

  • Braille, disk and audio cassette.
  • Minority languages.


Our Disability Action Plan 2014 - 2017 is available following its annual review.

Our approved Equality Scheme, Audit of Inequalities and Action Plan are also available, as are our Equality Impact Assessments, Good Relations Plan and Section 75 Screening Forms. These are available under our Publications section.


Please note that public consultation on the following policy is now open. Comments should be submitted to the Equality Manager via the contact details below by 17 March 2017.

If you need any of these documents in another format such as Braille, disk, audio cassette or in a minority language, please complete a contact enquiry form or contact the Equality Unit for more details.
