The occasion is the presentation of the results of a cross-Nordic study on good practice and the effects of municipalities’ work with gender mainstreaming. At the conference the study will be presented along with recommendations on how the municipalities in the Nordic countries can work with gender mainstreaming. Five good practice-cases from the study will be presented by practitioners and put into a broader perspective on gender equality and public service by professors or persons of relevant knowledge. The public service areas in focus at the conference are urban planning, employment, healthcare, children’s daycare and care for the elderly.

The conference targets leaders and employees in the public sectors in the Nordic region, who work with, or are interested in, gender mainstreaming. The conference also targets leaders and employers who want tools for documenting the effects of gender mainstreaming.

The conference will be held in the Scandinavian anguages. There will be interpretation from the Scandinavian languages to English in all program events in plenum and in session 1 (urban planning) and 3 (healthcare).
