Equinet Training Event on LGBTI issues

May 5th 2014

On 17-18 June 2014 in Stockholm, Equinet, with the support and hosting of the Swedish Equality Ombudsman, organised a training event on LGBTI issues.

LGBTI Training - Agenda

Equinet’s perspective on LGBTI people as well as other sources (such as the work of FRA) show that LGBTI people suffer serious discrimination in daily life. Equality bodies can be key actors of change in improving their situation.

This Equinet training event strived to provide equality body staff members with a space for peer learning and for discussing key challenges as well as good practices in the field.
