Transparency and Diversity Mission Statement
Stavanger City believes very firmly in universal transparency and diversity within the community.
The Council believes that, for real diversity, people must feel confident that no-one is discriminated on the grounds of ethnicity, religion, colour, gender, disability, age, or sexual preference.
The Council believes that planning in Stavanger must be governed by these principles of Transparency and Diversity. It holds that transparency towards all groups in society is the key to good living conditions for all.
The Council is particularly committed to combating discrimination, harassment and bullying at institutions which we own and run. It intends that national initiatives to combat discrimination, harassment and bullying shall be adopted and take root locally.
The Department of Personnel and Organisation have a special responsibility to devise a universal strategy to promote and safeguard ethnic diversity based on the Municipal Master Plan. To this end, a network of representatives from different service sectors in the City has come together.
This Network for Ethnic Diversity is charged with the following mandate and tasks:
Prepare a universal Strategy for Ethnic Diversity based on the Municipal Master Plan.
Assess the viability of current reporting systems, including the Equality and Anti-Discrimination Ombud under the national Anti-Discrimination Act.
Assess how political decisions and national guidelines may be implemented in the City's various reporting systems.
Explore international links and useful partner organisations within City-2-City networks, conferences, successful projects and other areas.
