Diversity impact assessment

Social Value and Design of the Built Environment, published by the Supply Chain Sustainability School in 2017, defines a Diversity Impact Assessment (DIA) as: ‘..a tool used by Network Rail and others to anticipate the likely effects of activity on people, based on the characteristics protected by the Equality Act 2010, and to enable action to be taken to manage or mitigate any negative effects. Other organisations might refer to similar tools as Equality Impact Assessments.’
