Publications & mainstreaming (gender, diversity, …)

Internal practice

Duration

The past, present and ongoing

Reason it was developed

Create publications of the trade union which are representative for the diverse society

Activities

In every publication of the trade union (member magazine, social media, website, …) we try to find a balance in gender and diversity and not be stereotype for pictures, articles, persons we interview, the language we use. Every year we evaluate this

Results

We have interesting publications and get positive response from members and education stakeholders.
