The new objectives, which are aimed at improving equality in the profession and internally within the BSB, were developed by the BSB Equality and Diversity Committee, and will build upon the 2012-13 objectives.

The objectives for 2013-14 have been published on the BSB website – and are available to view via – and the BSB Equality Strategy 2013-16 will be updated to reflect the new goals.

The Equality Act 2010 (Specific Duties) Regulations 2011 requires public bodies to publish their equality objectives no later than 6 April 2012.

Objectives must be re-published at intervals of not greater than four years following the date of first publication.
