Support for the update of Kokkola’s equality and non-discrimination plan

MDI supported the city of Kokkola in updating its operational equality and non-discrimination plan. The work focused on the objectives and conditions of equality and non-discrimination laws, as well as the experiences of the city’s various population groups and those working with them regarding the current challenges in respect of equality and non-discrimination. Additionally, the work took into account both national objectives and Kokkola’s strengths and existing operational models in equality and non-discrimination work.

MDI’s contribution to the work came in two phases. The work began with an analysis of the current situation which included compiling key background information. In this phase, the existing plan, Kokkola’s strategy, and the wellbeing plan were examined and complaints and collected statistics on the subject were reviewed. In the final phase of the work, MDI’s experts first drafted a preliminary proposal for Kokkola’s updated equality and non-discrimination plan, with the draft being finalised after the client’s round of comments.
