In March 2019 the Arts Council launched its new Equality, Human Rights and Diversity (EHRD) policy which proposes positive policy measures to promote equality of opportunity, access and outcomes for all those living in Ireland regardless of their gender, sexual orientation, civil or family status, religion, age, disability, race or membership of the Traveller community, with socio-economic background included as a tenth ground. In a bid to guarantee that the policy would be both living and pro-active an initial three-year action plan was incorporated into the policy to ensure its immediate implementation.
