Promoting Gender Equality through Empowerment and Mainstreaming
In 2013, the Office of the Equality Commissioner launched its “Promoting Gender Equality through Empowerment and Mainstreaming” project, aimed at increasing awareness of equality between men and women and equal treatment among the general public, legal professionals and employers. Legal protection against gender discrimination and multiple discrimination will also be improved.
The project activities are divided according to two main objectives:
- more effective and accessible legal assistance for victims of discrimination
- promotion of equality between men and women in the public sector.
The project will run until 31 December 2015 with a total budget of 700 000 EUR funded through the Norway Grants 2009-2014.
