It is a unique Swedish cooperative venture which involves the European Social Fund, the Swedish Secretariat for Gender Research, the County Administrative Board, the Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions (SALAR) and the Swedish Governmental Agency for Innovation Systems (VINNOVA).
From 2011 to 2013, Includegender.org was funded by sustainable gender equality program which is hosted by the Swedish Association of Local Authorities and Regions.
