The purpose of the Non-Discrimination Commission is to promote non-discrimination in all city operations and services. The commission aims to bring non-discrimination into the mainstream and include non-discrimination impact assessments as an overarching principle in all city operations.
The commission’s principal task is to monitor the execution and progress of the service non-discrimination plan. Other tasks of the commission include the promotion of non-discriminatory conduct in city services. The first term of the Non-Discrimination Commission started in autumn 2017.
The commission is appointed by the city board and includes seven elected officials from different political parties. The work of the Non-Discrimination Commission is organised by a rapporteur, who also coordinates the city’s operative non-discrimination work. The commission meets once a month, except in the summer.
The Non-Discrimination Commission works closely with the Gender Equality Commission and also the city’s special councils, as necessary. The Non-Discrimination Commission executes its function by hearing from experts and issuing statements.
