The Minister for Women and Equalities and the Equalities Ministerial team engage with a wide range of relevant interested parties.

Officials in the Government Equalities Office also engage broadly with interested parties, feeding the insights gathered into policy advice. They regularly meet with relevant organisations including, most recently, with The Fawcett Society, Equally Ours and the UK Civil Society Women’s Alliance to discuss the gendered impacts of COVID-19. Officials also engage widely to support any formal consultations, for example meeting with almost 140 organisations before and during the consultation on the Gender Recognition Act.
