Scotland believes in equality, 06/11/14 [S]

MSPs from all parties gathered outside the Scottish Parliament today to support the launch of the next phase of a campaign to promote equality and celebrate diversity in Scotland.

Following the successful launch of the onescotland.org website during Glasgow 2014, the next phase of the One Scotland campaign focuses on promoting equality for LGBTI and ethnic minority people.

Cabinet Secretary for Equalities Shona Robison today joined a number of MSPs from all parties in the gardens of the Scottish Parliament for the unveiling of a new ‘Equals’ sculpture by award-winning Edinburgh artist Kate Ive.

Recent YouGov research commissioned by the Scottish Government found three-quarters (76 per cent) of Scots agree Scotland has made great progress towards equality over the past 10 years. However, 89 per cent of people surveyed also believe more work needs to be done to ensure people are treated equally.
