Equality Pathfinders are organisations taking part in a voluntary and non-competitive recognition scheme leading the way in making Fife a fair, equal and inclusive place to live, work and study.

This recognition scheme reflects Fife Centre for Equalities’ approach to mainstreaming equality by:

  • Taking into account all protected characteristics of the Equality Act 2010
  • Providing a structured and adaptable workforce development programme
  • Being non-competitive, inclusive and achievable by organisations of any size or sector

There are three successive levels of the award:

  • Bronze – demonstrating compliance with the Equality Act 2010
  • Silver – demonstrating and evidencing positive action
  • Gold – demonstrating, evidencing and sustaining good equality practice

Find out more details about the programme in our yearly Equality Pathfinders Evaluation Report.
