EQUALITY BALANCE

O Projeto EQUALITY BALANCE pretende criar um instrumento transversal a todos os setores da atividade económica, que permita avaliar as medidas legislativas promotoras da Igualdade de Género. O instrumento a criar será testado numa amostra de ONG`s, representativa de diferentes setores de atividade, do distrito de Braga, embora possa ser utilizado em qualquer organização/ entidade, independentemente do setor de atividade económica, natureza jurídica ou região onde está implantada.
O papel das ONG será crucial na criação do instrumento, no sentido de garantir um output que conte com a contribuição daquelas que, no terreno, tentam implementar as medidas legislativas na área da IG. O seu envolvimento irá favorecer a criação de um instrumento útil e validado por estas entidades, potenciando a sua aplicação prática após a conclusão do projeto.
O Projeto tem duas componentes: (1) definição e elaboração de um instrumento e (2) aplicação do mesmo (para efeito de teste e subsequente validação) e posterior divulgação.

The project Equality Balance falls within the scope of the Program Small Grant Scheme, sponsored by the EEA Grants Program in partnership with the Commission for Citizenship and Gender Equality. This project resulted from a joint effort between the Associação Famílias and the ID-Norway, partner entity of Norway.
The EQUALITY BALANCE project aim was to create a horizontal instrument to all sectors of economic activity, enabling the assessment of legislative measures to promote gender equality. The project had two components: (1) definition and development of an instrument and (2) application of it (for testing purpose and subsequent validation) and further dissemination. Through the creation of this instrument it is possible to establish whether the laws contribute to the realization of the principle of gender equality.
For instrument validation purposes, we used a sample of 30 participants (10 officers and 20 collaborators) belonging to 10 NGOs of Braga.
Given the legislative test measure is the fact that the instrument has as NGOs sample of Braga were prepared two versions of the instrument: the first, for the leaders / managers of NGOs; the second, intended for collaborators of these entities. The preparation of these two versions resulted from the need to consider the different perspectives due to the implementation of the legislative measure in force. Thus the instrument on the leaders / responsible intends to run for a discussion about how the entities are positioned, in general, regarding the guiding questions of gender equality, analyzing particular, how the same part in their daily measurement legislative many conditions of enjoyment and access to rights relating to breastfeeding and breastfeeding. The version intended for employees of the entities intended to gather information about how they have enjoyed the legislative measure in question, trying to detect any negative points of it and act on them.
Given the results obtained through the Equality Balance Project was possible to access a greater understanding of how the right to the enjoyment of breastfeeding and lactating is
competing for the universal principle of gender equality, is the way the measure is designed to be on the way it is implemented by NGOs.

The purpose of EQUALITY BALANCE Project is to create an instrument for all sectors of economic activity that will allow the evaluation of the laws that promote Gender Equality.
The instrument will be tested on a sample of NGOs (Non-Governmental Organization) that represents the different sectors of economic activity in Braga district, although it can be used in any organization / entity, regardless the sector of economic activity, legal nature or region where it is located.
The role of NGOs will be crucial in the instrument creation, because will ensure an output that relies on the contribution of those who, in the field, try to implement the legislation of the GE (Gender Equality). Their involvement will support the creation of an useful and validated instrument by these entities, increasing their practical application after the project conclusion.
The project has two components: (1) definition and elaboration of an instrument and (2) application of the instrument (for testing purposes and subsequent validation) and following disclosure.
