Section 4: Equality Impact

QUESTION 16: We should welcome comments on whether the matters covered in the consultation paper raise any equalities issues that require to be addressed with respect to age, disability, gender reassignment, pregnancy and maternity, ethnicity, religion or belief, sex or sexual orientation.

4.1 Given that the appointment of a highly regarded candidate may in certain circumstances have an adverse effect on a board's gender balance, the proposed supplementary guidance makes clear that their appointment should not be automatic as equality issues must still be considered.
