Equalities Policy Statement
Birmingham Libraries subscribe to Birmingham City Council's policy for equality, diversity and social inclusion. Under this the City Council believes the diversity of the local community enriches the City and contributes to its social and economic prosperity. It believes all members of the community have a right to equality of opportunity and social justice in the way they are treated. The aim of this policy is to set out the City Council's commitments on equality, diversity and social inclusion.
The City Council will not discriminate against anyone on the basis of gender, disabilities, ethnicity, faith, age or sexual orientation. This list is not exhaustive and the City Council realises it must achieve equality for people who experience discrimination in areas such as ill health and social exclusion.
The City Council's focus on equality, diversity and social inclusion covers a wide range of services. The City Council will not support the delivery of any services which sustains discrimination and disadvantage amongst socially excluded groups. In addition it will promote equality, diversity and social inclusion amongst other public sector providers and partners in the services they provide.
