The 2011 Equality Authority Final Annual Report was launched by Justice and Equality Minister Alan Shatter TD at the College of Physicians in Dublin on Monday 9 July 2012.
"The Equality Authority, over the course of its existence, has contributed significantly to the promotion of equality in Ireland. One of the longest-lasting legacies of the Authority will be the educational measures undertaken with schools and with community groups and the business community, in addition to the awareness campaigns targeted at the general public, that have ensured that, across generations and across backgrounds, many more people have a deeper understanding of a diversity of cultures and views. We have had successful campaigns raising awareness of the issues of racism, age discrimination, gender discrimination and homophobic bullying, to name but a few," said Angela Kerins, Chairperson of the Equality Authority at the launch of the report.
