2015 marks an ambitious new period in the Equinet calendar as we launch the Strategic Plan for 2015 to 2018, which extends and develops the objectives and strategies from the 2011 to 2014 period.
At the Annual General Meeting held on 4th December 2014, the members of Equinet agreed to adopt the plan which emphasises the mission of Equinet as being a network which "promotes equality in Europe through supporting and enabling the work of national equality bodies". It will do this by supporting "equality bodies to be independent and effective as valuable catalysts for more equal societies".
The new Strategic Plan has four main objectives:
Apart from continued capacity-building and consolidation of the network and its members, there is a new focus on contributing more to the European Equality Agenda and establishing Equinet as a knowledge and communication hub on equal treatment.
The Strategic Plan is supported by the 2015 Work Plan which clearly outlines the activities and outputs that are planned for the year and links them to the respective objectives that they aim to meet.
