During our investment round for 2015-18 we have undertaken extensive equality analyses of our National portfolio organisations (NPOs) and Major partner museums (MPMs). This analysis has taken place alongside the current investment round and is a complementary process, which offers mitigations and appropriate actions to allow the areas of most concern to be addressed over the duration of the funding period 2015-18. It was presented to the National Council, who were asked to consider it before and during the decision making process.
At the second stage of assessing applications to our National portfolio, we also judged application’s contribution to the Creative Case for Diversity. A clarifying note in relation to assessment for Diversity and Equality can be found in Appendix A of the National Equality Analysis: National portfolio organisations 2015-18 below.
