Implementation of the plan requires concrete action
The development of policies and practices in a more equal direction requires concrete action. This is done through the implementation of the objectives and measures set out in the equality plan.
For implementation, it is important to appoint a person responsible for each measure who must have a realistic opportunity to perform the task within their working hours. The working group that prepared the plan may provide support to the person responsible. A separate working group can also be appointed to coordinate and monitor implementation, including representatives from parties responsible for implementing measures. The working group can jointly agree on practices for monitoring implementation.
A plan can be drawn up to support the implementation, listing the measures, the timetable, the responsible parties, the costs and other information relevant to the implementation.
During implementation, a need may arise in the organisation to respond to an equality-related topic. A degree of flexibility in implementation is therefore possible and desirable. The purpose of equality planning is to serve as a framework for developing equality, and the plan should not become an end in itself.
