Driving positive change to make a difference

Responsibility and accountability

All staff and others associated with the WMCA must make sure that their actions meet the requirements of WMCA equality policies and the Equality Scheme.

The following groups have specific responsibilities:

  • The Inclusive Communities Portfolio Lead member has overall responsibility and accountability for making sure the Scheme‚Äôs objectives are delivered effectively.

  • The Strategic Leadership Team (SLT) is responsible for providing consistent and high-profile leadership on equality and diversity and promoting equality and diversity strategies both inside and outside the WMCA.

  • All heads of department and managers are responsible for making sure that the Equality Scheme is implemented in their service areas, that their staff are fully informed about their responsibilities, and that they receive support and training so they are able to carry them out.
