This consultation allowed members to engage without directly naming or representing their respective organisations. The consultation laid out the government’s aims to ensure that all public bodies were transparent and accountable when it comes to equality. Yet, our eagle-eyed group concluded the plans for implementation of the Equality Act regulations often obscured the data, making it hard to engage with public bodies. It was good to exercise our right to participate, but I felt it was a rather timely reminder of what it feels like to be on the other side of a consultation where the agenda is already firmly set.
