What's it got to do with you?

What's it got to do with you? explains why a range of data – such as age, gender, sexual orientation and belief – may now be requested by employers and service providers, and what the benefit  of providing this information is. With many organisations responding to new measures in the Equality Act public sector duties, ‘What’s it got to do with you?’ makes the case for monitoring across all equality strands.


No other guide exists that explains the rationale for monitoring in a clear and straightforward way. What's it got to do with you? will help people understand why they should complete monitoring forms. Organisations will benefit by receiving accurate and complete information as a result.

Specially printed hard copies of the guide with your organisation's logo on the back cover can be also be printed.

This series also includes What's it got to do with me?, a guide explaing why people should keep their local services on their toes. 

For more information on ordering hard copies of the guide or specially printed copies, please email catherine.somerville@stonewallscotland.org.uk.

Stonewall Scotland have also produced a range of posters and postcards to help get the message out to staff and service users that diversity monitoring is a necessary procedure. These are available to download here:
