The Equality and Human Rights Commission is Britain’s national equality and human rights body. They operate in Scotland, England and Wales. They aim to help make Britain fairer, by safeguarding and enforcing the laws that protect people’s rights to fairness, dignity and respect.
The EHRC Scotland Committee is a statutory committee which advises the Commission on its work in Scotland. It is chaired by the EHRC Scotland Commissioner, Dr Lesley Sawers.
In new members, they are looking for people from a wide variety of backgrounds and life experiences, and who have a passion and commitment to furthering equality in Scotland.
