WoM provides consulting in drawing up gender equality and diversity plans. WoM can also conduct personnel surveys on gender equality and diversity.
For public sector and projects we provide consultancy in gender mainstreaming.
WoM is experienced in consulting gender mainstreaming and gender equality assessment in projects, such as projects funded by European Social Fund (see the publication below).
WoM has experience in conducting studies, reports and publications related to gender equality. Research work at WoM is based on academic knowledge and firm experience. The data can be collected, for example, through interviews or online surveys.
In 2016, WoM participated in conducting a Vuoden 2016 Preliminary study of strengths, weaknesses and sustainability of the Nordic welfare state. The publication was ordered by Ministry of Social Affairs and Health, and co-authored with Rehabilitation Foundation, Oxford Research, the Swedish School of Social Science (SSKH) at the University of Helsinki, and WoM.
WoM has also been a national consult in research ordered by EIGE. For example, WoM was a national consult in a study on economic benefits of gender equality, and in a study on women and poverty. Both research projects were managed by ICF International.
Two of WoM’s earlier publications have been translated in English. You are welcome to download and read them. We are also glad if you provide us feedback regarding the publications.
