Promotion of equality
Under the Non-Discrimination Act, authorities, education providers and employers are obliged to promote equality. Equality planning is the key tool for promoting equality. Equality planning is a procedure where an organisation assesses and develops its activities, in a detailed and goal-oriented manner, from the perspective of guaranteeing equality.
The Ministry of Justice draws up and further develops instructions and methods for equality planning and assessment, maintains a discrimination monitoring system, and coordinates national non-discrimination campaigns.
The website Equality.fi, maintained by the Ministry of Justice, contains information about practical tools and good practices for equality planning. In addition, the website contains information on the related legislation and research, training materials, and information on campaigns and projects related to the promotion of equality.
