Description: Assessment of the impact of gender in the cultural policies and activities by the Las Palmas de Gran Canaria City Council.
At the request of the City Council of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Opciónate will conduct a gender impact assessment of cultural policies and activities put into action by the City Council Culture and Presidency Offices in order to meet the requirements set out by Objective 10 “To introduce the gender perspective in municipal cultural programming and promote a balanced presence of women and men” as established in the ‘III Plan Canario de Igualdad entre Hombres y Mujeres de Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (2018-2021) [III Canarian Plan for Equality between Men and Women of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (2018-2021)]’.
During the March-August 2021 period, the policies, programmes, projects and activities put in place by the Las Palmas de Gran Canaria City Council Culture Office will be analysed from a gender perspective.
The assessment can be defined as a systematic, participatory and experiential process of reflection, data gathering, development of gender indicators, analysis of policies, procedures, programs, projects and programmed activities, with the purpose of understanding the differentiated impact they have had on women and men, and the relations established between them.
Once the assessment has reached it final stage and issues have been identified, we will then be able to formulate indicators, mechanisms and measures aimed at mitigating and neutralizing the potential negative impacts previously identified, thus contributing to real and effective equality between women and men.
With this programme, the City Council of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria responds to the well-known and growing need to incorporate the gender perspective to public policing, over which there is broad international, European, national and local consensus.
