Action Plan in response to the Civil Service Strategy
Promoting Equality, Valuing Diversity – a strategy for the Civil Service was published in July 2008 and reflects the drive to mainstream equality and diversity further into every aspect of the work of the whole civil service. Defra has produced an action plan setting out what we will be doing to support the delivery of the wider Civil Service Strategy. This action plan aligns the existing commitments outlined in the Defra Diversity strategy and Equality schemes with the four key themes of the Civil Service Strategy.
