From Statistics to Analysis and Improvement
Effective gender equality work requires access to sex-disaggregated statistics and good analyses. In this tutorial, you can read more about how you can go about it.
This material is based on the training programme “From Statistics to Analysis and Improvement” within the framework of the Gender Mainstreaming in Government Agencies programme.
Gender Mainstreaming of Regulatory Documents
Gender mainstreaming is Sweden’s main strategy to achieve the national gender equality objectives. The central aim of Swedish gender equality policy is to ensure that women and men have the same power to shape society and their own lives.
This material gives you an insight into how to mainstream gender into policy documents. The material has been developed within the framework of the Gender Mainstreaming in Government Agencies programme.
Gender Mainstreaming of the Allocation of Grants
Swedish government agencies make transfer payments worth hundreds of millions of Swedish crowns to individuals and organisations every year. Gender equality in the distribution of these funds is an important matter of democracy.
The purpose of this text is to discuss and give recommendations on how government agencies can gender mainstream their allocation of transfer payments. The material has been developed within the framework of the Gender Mainstreaming in Government Agencies programme.
Gender Mainstreaming with an Intersectional Perspective
This material is for anybody who wants to improve gender mainstreaming efforts by incorporating an intersectional perspective. It explains the meaning of intersectionality and what happens when an intersectional perspective is integrated (or not integrated) in the gender equality work. The material explains how gender equality work can be improved with an intersectional perspective.
Guidelines for Gender Mainstreaming Academia
The Swedish Secretariat for Gender Research at the University of Gothenburg has been commissioned to support the government initiative Gender Mainstreaming in Academia (GMA) during the period 2016–2019.
The purpose of this material is to serve as an introduction for the universities in Sweden partaking in the GMA-programme. The material presents a general model for the assessment of gendered inequalities, focusing on a set of operational processes complemented by guiding questions. The guiding questions target different parts of the organisation and aim to point out ways to implement, or continue, the work of gender mainstreaming within the organisation. Note that several questions require statistical material and in-depth analysis in order to achieve relevant strategies for change.
The guidelines presented are based on the Secretariat’s experiences from the related project Gender Mainstreaming in Government Agencies (GMGA), as well as the latest research on and evaluation of gender mainstreaming in public administration.
