EQuality Assured Standard

The EQuality Assured (EQA ) Certification programme is a recognised, comprehensive approach to embedding good practice in equality, diversity and inclusion. Through following the programme you will embed good inclusion practices into core business processes.

The EQA Certification is a benchmark of equality best practice between organisations of all sizes and business sectors. It is a proven management system framework designed to integrate with existing management systems. Our highly qualified advisors and auditors have extensive experience of managing change in organisations and are experienced in supporting clients to set equality objectives and measure results in line with business strategy.

The EQA Certification is used by organisations to:

  • Achieve best practice standards in support of maintaining a great reputation
  • Gain recognition for their inclusion best practice
  • Evidence they meet or exceed their clients’ equality, diversity and inclusion objectives and requirements.
  • Utilise a recognised benchmark tool for equality, diversity and inclusion good practice in their supply chain.
  • Demonstrate they value strong equality principles.

The EQA Certification is used by Public Sector and corporate organisations looking to outsource their equality, diversity and inclusion function and build capability into their supply chains.

Based on a tried and tested continual improvement model, the programme builds an effective diversity & inclusion integrated system. It uses a mentored approach by highly qualified specialists. Mentors work collaboratively with staff and build your internal resilience quickly; supporting you to save resources, limit risk and guide your path to excellence.
