An integral part of tourism today
Equality is a vital part of any thriving industry, and tourism is no different. We make sure that our sense of equality is well represented throughout our approach and actions, whether that’s as a service provider to Scotland’s visitors and tourism businesses or as an employer.
The protected characteristics set out by The Equality Act 2010 are as follows; age, disability, gender reassignment, marriage and civil partnership, pregnancy and maternity, race, religion or belief, sex, sexual orientation. These characteristics are protected against discrimination by law.
Our obligations under the Public Sector Equality Duty mean that we are fully committed to:
- Eliminating discrimination against, and advance equality of opportunity for, people who share relevant protected characteristics.
- Fostering good relations between people who share a protected characteristic and those who do not.
