Gender equality and diversity planning at compulsory school and in kindergarten -guidebook

Guidebook for teaching personnel on gender equality and diversity planning at compulsory school as well as in kindergarten to support planning and actualisation.

The Gender equality and diversity planning at compulsory school and in kindergarten -guidebook is a compilation of study materials that were produced for a national in-service training pilot arranged online in 2014. The National Board of Education provided funding for the project.

Our intention was to write a guidebook for teaching personnel that would provide them easy access to and a holistic overview of gender equality and diversity planning, approaching the theme from an organization perspective.

In the guidebook, we are examining the structures, processes and resources of schools and kindergartens in relation to the principles of gender equality and diversity to view possible needs and shadows.

Consideration of prevailing cultural diversity, recognition and resolution of possible conflicts as well as addressing the larger societal and legal context brings depth to gender equality and diversity work from an organizational point of view.
