The county administrative board has a mission from the government to coordinate the county’s efforts for gender equality according to the national goal “Women and men should have an equal amount of power and influence over all aspects of life”. These efforts are framed by the regional gender equality strategy ”Ett jämställt Kalmar län 2017-2027” where national goals are regionalized based on specific challenges present in Kalmar county.
This strategy includes an affiliation system that allows the county’s authorities, municipalities, and other associations and important actors to embrace the strategy and thereby gain support from the county administrative board. The website www.ettjamstalltkalmarlan.nu is the platform where actors within the county can apply to affiliate themselves to gain support.
The website also features tools, positive examples, and references to scientific studies and methods on the topic of gender equality. In addition, the site features a blog with updates regarding the work done by the county administrative board. The site also links to the county administrative board’s own website.
