    Goals / Remit

    Equinet is the European Network of Equality Bodies, a membership organisation bringing together 47 equality bodies from across Europe, including all of the EU Member States.

    Equality bodies are public organisations assisting victims of discrimination, monitoring and reporting on discrimination issues, and/or promoting equality. They are legally required to do so in relation to one, some, or all of the grounds of discrimination covered by European Union (EU) law – gender, race and ethnicity, age, sexual orientation, religion or belief, and disability.

    Equinet aims to:
    - Strengthen and support Equality Bodies to achieve equality for all
    - Act as an expert voice of Equality Bodies in Europe on equality and non-discrimination
    - Maintain and improve Equinet’s capacity as a strong, resilient, and innovative Network

    Main EU files targeted

    Standards for National Equality Bodies; Horizontal Anti-discrimination Directive; Women on Boards Directive; Roadmap on Work Life Balance; European Pillar of Social Rights; European Accessibility Act; AI European Approach
