What is an Equality diversity and inclusion (EDI) action plan?

An EDI (Equity, Diversity and Inclusion) Action Plan Template is a document that outlines the steps an organisation will take to promote diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace. It is a tool that can be used to set specific goals and objectives, identify resources needed, and track progress towards achieving these goals.

By using an EDI Action Plan Template, organisations can create a roadmap for promoting diversity, equity, and inclusion in the workplace and track progress towards achieving these goals. It can help organisations to identify areas for improvement, establish accountability, and create a more inclusive and welcoming workplace culture.
