Participation body that analyzes the participation of associations and groups of women and feminists in the municipality.
A participatory committee is a group of members of an organization who meet periodically to make decisions about a specific area or scope of the organization.
Participatory committees hold meetings, some are private and some are open. If they are open, it is possible to participate in them (for example: attending if the capacity allows it, adding points to the agenda, or commenting on the proposals and decisions taken by this organ).
Examples: A general participatory committee (which meets once a year to define the organisation's main lines of action as well as its executive bodies by vote), an equality advisory council (which meets every two months to make proposals on how to improve gender relations in the organisation), an evaluation commission (which meets every month to monitor a process) or a guarantee body (which collects incidents, abuses or proposals to improve decision-making procedures) are all examples of participatory committees.
The Equality Commission is a space for coordination between representatives of the government team, representatives of the technical team and representatives of women’s and feminist associations and groups in the municipality.
The Commission is created and formalized in May 2020. Its aim is to promote and coordinate the certification process for obtaining the Badge for Gender Equality.
This badge strengthens the capacity to implement public gender policies and allows the implementation of a management system to assess and certify the municipal commitment to effective equality between women and men. It is obtained through the commitment to carry out different actions for a period of two years.
