Government Equalities Office (GEO) to join Cabinet Office

16 November 2018

The Minister for Women and Equalities Penny Mordaunt has announced that the Government Equalities Office is to join the Cabinet Office from the 1st of April 2019.

“This machinery of government change will provide a permanent home for the Government Equalities Office in line with the key recommendations from the Women and Equalities Select Committee earlier this year. It will enable the GEO to have even more influence and leverage within government, working with the Race Disparity Unit, and the Office of Disability Issues, and others, to drive meaningful progress on equalities, and I think this will be a step-up in the work that the Government Equalities Office can do to reduce inequality in the UK.”
