a) The number of roles in your association (expressed in numbers of FTE), that are mainly or exclusively focussed on issues of equality, diversity, or inclusivity. For example, this could include (amongst other guises) “EDI officers” or “diversity and inclusion project managers” but would not include general HR managers.
b) Either a) the pay band of each of these roles, or b) the combined total salaries for these roles. Whichever measure is more in accordance with your data preferences.
c) In the past 12 months the number of staff days across your organisation which have been committed to attending equality training programmes, whether internally run or with external consultants. (staff days = duration of the training programme multiplied by the number of staff in attendance for the course).
d) The contractual cost of any consultants hired, in the past twelve months, to provide any external training or advice on issues of diversity, equality, or inclusivity.
e) In the past twelve months, the number of staff days committed to attending conferences relating mainly or exclusively to matters of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion. (duration of conference multiplied by the number of staff in attendance).
f) The costs of attending these conferences.
g) Membership costs the organisation pays for participation in equality charters such as the Stonewall Equality Champions, or Diversity and Inclusion Workplace champions.
a) Transport Scotland do not have any roles dedicated to equality, diversity or inclusivity.
These areas of our organisation are covered by the wider Scottish Government.
b) As stated in response to section A, this is not applicable to Transport Scotland.
c) As an agency of Scottish Government, Transport Scotland has mandatory diversity and inclusion learning that they must complete. The learning they'll complete depends on the role. There are no set days committed to this learning, this is done within their working hours as part of their role and must be updated on a yearly basis.
g) Transport Scotland do not directly pay for any memberships for participation in equality charters. This is again, something that would be covered by wider Scottish Government.
