Non-binary equality action plan: equality impact assessment

Equality impact assessment (EQIA) for the non-binary equality action plan.

Stage 5 - Authorisation of EQIA

This Equality Impact Assessment has informed the development of the Non-Binary Equality Action Plan.

Opportunities to promote equality in respect of age, disability, gender reassignment, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex and sexual orientation have been considered, including:

  • Eliminating unlawful discrimination, harassment, victimisation;
  • Removing or minimising any barriers and/or disadvantages;
  • Taking steps which assist with promoting equality and meeting people’s different needs;
  • Encouraging participation (e.g. in public life)
  • Fostering good relations, tackling prejudice and promoting understanding.


I am satisfied with the equality impact assessment that has been undertaken for the review of the Non-Binary Equality Action Plan and give my authorisation for the results of this assessment to be published on the Scottish Government’s website.
