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.

  • Persons of different religious belief, political opinion, racial group, age, marital status or sexual orientation
