The implementation of the equality plan must be accompanied by a tracking calendar. This track should be done in the form of regular meetings, where the GEP Team would have these tasks:

  • To check the state of planned measures/ initiatives
  • To asses the responsible person, and provide them with tools, materials or guides on the initiative they will start developing.
  • To asses in re-planning the GEP, if needed.
  • To help thinking on alternative straegies if non-expected resistances or obstacles arise.

The following pictures sum up the reflection we did sharing our experiences in our last meeting in Ljubljana:
