Norman Broadbent delivers ODA draft Equality strategy

The Olympic Delivery Authority has published its draft Equality and Diversity Strategy for consultation.The draft strategy sets out how equality and diversity principles will be incorporated into the project, including the design and delivery of the venues, infrastructure and transport associated with the construction of the Olympic Park.

The strategy also sets out how the principles of equality and diversity will be built into the business and employment opportunities generated during the construction phase of the Games and how it will be an integral part of the ODA's community.
The ODA's Draft Equality and Diversity aims are to:

  • Create and build an Olympic Park for Games and Legacy, which are inclusive for people of all cultures, faiths and ages and fully accessible to disabled people with a wide range of impairments, and provide an accessible transport network
  • Ensure all processes used to recruit and manage employees working to build the venues, infrastructure and transport are demonstrably fair and offer equal opportunities to all
  • Work with partner organisations to encourage women, Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic (BAME) and disabled people to train and apply for jobs in construction and to combat workplace discrimination
  • Ensure that the procurement of all work, goods and services is transparent, fair and open to diverse suppliers
  • Engage with diverse groups within the local communities
  • Build our own organisational capacity in equality and diversity and develop the equality competence of our direct employees
  • Integrate equality and diversity into our business processes

The Draft Equality and Diversity Strategy have been developed with expert advice and support from Norman Broadbent Diversity Practice.
