To ask the Scottish Government what role the regional equality councils will play in taking forward its racial equality framework.
Answered by: Angela Constance 7 December 2016
A pioneering programme of engagement activities was used to ensure that a wide range of organisations and individuals, from grassroots community organisations, to practitioners working the public sector and academia, had an active role in the Race Equality Framework.
We are determined to show leadership in advancing race equality in Scotland, and we will continue to work closely with public and third sector organisations, including regional equality councils, in undertaking a wide-range of actions to address inequalities through our Race Equality Framework.
