The Equality and Diversity Committee, a sub-committee of the Board of Trustees and Council of Management, has been established to advise the Board of Trustees and Council of Management on issues relating to Equality and Diversity. The Chair of the Committee is appointed by the Board of Trustees.
The Chair on behalf of the Board of Trustees and Council of Management may invite members of ACAT to join the Committee for a term of two years, in order to bring together expertise in this field. Non-ACAT members may also be seconded at the Chair’s discretion. One member of the Committee will be a representative of the Board of Trustees and another will represent the Training Committee and Exam Board.
The Terms of Reference and Work Plan for the year ahead are agreed between the Board of Trustees and Council of Management and Chair of the Equality and Diversity Committee thus providing a mandate for the work of the Committee.
Recommendations arising from the work of the Committee will be submitted to the Board and Council of Management meetings (held three times a year). The Chair of the Equality and Diversity Committee will be seconded to the Council of Management and is welcome to attend these meetings. Final decisions on the implementation of recommendations will be made at these meetings.
Satellite working groups reporting to the Equality and Diversity Committee can be established at the Chair’s discretion.
The Equality and Diversity Committee will be supported by:
