About Equality Committee
Rule 52 (B) of the INTO Rules and Constitution (2009) states:
The EQC shall advise the CEC:
(i) On such equality matters as are remitted to it by the CEC; and
(ii) On such other equality matters as the committee itself wishes to investigate.
Its members are the President, Vice President and one representative elected by the members of each of the 16 districts. The current committee began its three year term in April 2011. At its first meeting in May the committee devises its programme of work for the year. Each September the committee undergoes training according to the needs identified at the first meeting. Further meetings are held in November, January and March.
Pamphlets, leaflets and posters pertaining to equality issues are often produced for teachers and schools.
An Equality Conference is held every three years. The Equality committee decides the theme of the conference based on one or more of the nine equality grounds. The next conference is due to be held in March 2013.
Papers, documents and discussions from previous conferences are available in the Conference Archive.
