Gender Equality Fund

The Nordic Gender Equality Fund finances collaborations that promote gender equality. Through the Fund, the Nordic Council of Ministers issues an annual call for proposals for funding projects in which at least three organisations, from at least three Nordic countries, collaborate. The aims of the projects can be to contribute new knowledge, a sharing of experiences or strengthening Nordic infrastructure.

During autumn 2020, there will be a targeted call for proposals with the aim of combating gender segregation in the labour market. The call gives those who are granted funding the opportunity to work longer-term for change.

NIKK administers the Fund on behalf of the Nordic Council of Ministers, including the call for proposals, assessment of proposals, and monitoring of results.
