4 Equality statement

NICE is committed to promoting equality, eliminating unlawful discrimination and actively considering the implications of its recommendations for human rights. It aims to comply fully with all legal obligations to:

  • promote race and disability equality, and equality of opportunity between men and women, and

  • eliminate unlawful discrimination on grounds of race, disability, age, gender, sexual orientation, and religion or belief in the way it carries out its functions and in its employment policies and practices.

NICE's equality scheme sets out how NICE is meeting these obligations on equality and discrimination and what it still needs to do.
