How to improve equality at ICYE Finland? Answer the survey and contribute to our equality planning!
ICYE Finland strives to promote equality in all its activities. We aim to promote cooperation between people from different backgrounds and to dismantle discriminatory thinking and structures. We aim to be responsible, inclusive, and as accessible as possible, regardless of any factors or aspects related to the person of our participants.
As an international actor, ICYE Finland strives to be aware of global power relations and its position in these structures, which are reflected in international volunteer exchange between the Global North and the Global South. ICYE Finland seeks to challenge and deconstruct colonial continuities and the stereotypes, prejudice and discrimination that they produce in society at large, and thus contribute to a more equal world.
Focal points of our equality work
ICYE Finland implements its principle of equality through equality planning. In our equality plan, we assess the current state of equality in the activities of ICYE Finland, set goals to further improve equality, and identify ways to achieve these goals.
Linked to our strategy, the plan outlines three focal points to be promoted between 2023 and 2026:
- antiracism and appreciating diversity
- safer space.
In addition to these prior focal points, the plan identifies three overarching principles that guide our equality planning at ICYE Finland:
- ethicalness and sustainability
