Applications for National Equality Forum (NEF) positions 2016-2019 are now open. The NEF is made up of one representative from each region (recommended by the REF and agreed by Regional Committee).

The other seats are made up of representatives of the 6 Equality strands. This means there is a Race, Gender, Disability, LGBT+, Migrant workers and Young Members position. It is these roles which are open for applications and members are entitled to put themselves forward. These roles are key to the drive to achieve equality in the workplace and community and we can achieve much with the help of committed, enthusiastic lay members who wish to offer their time and expertise as a member of the National Equality Forum.
