The goal of the two-year project, launched by the Ministry of Justice, is to promote equality and non-discrimination. The goal will be pursued by developing tools to the key players for carrying out equality work.

The Project Drivers of Equality strives to boost the equality planning processes between authorities, educational institutions and employers. Another goal is to increase the awareness among the key target groups and the general public about non-discrimination and diversity.

The purpose of the project is to develop tools and produce materials for equality planning, strengthen the cooperation between national actors and boost the implementation of the legislation on non-discrimination and equality.

The project partners are the Finnish Institute of Health and Welfare (THL), the Office of the Non-Discrimination Ombudsman and the City of Helsinki. The project term lasts until the beginning of 2023.

Prime Minister Marin’s Government is committed to promoting anti-discrimination work. The Project Drivers of Equality supports the Action Plan for Combating Racism and Promoting Good Relations between Population Groups (2021–2023), outlined in the Government Programme and coordinated by the Ministry of Justice.

The Project Drivers of Equality has received funding from the EU’s Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme (REC).
