No 5. Gender Equality

Gender equality is a prerequisite for sustainable and peaceful development, locally as well as on a global scale. Making a change demands that everyone takes responsibility and for Ski Tour 2020 it is matter of course to work for gender equality.

In a global perspective, gender equality is about providing the right conditions for equal division of power, influence and resources. For Ski Tour 2020 it is about providing the same conditions for women and men in terms of racing and training and within the organization. Ski Tour 2020 will, in all circumstances, counteract all forms of discrimination and sexual harassment and inspire other to do the same.

How Ski Tour 2020 wish to contribute to Gender Equality

>> Women and men will compete in the same distance between Storlien and Meråker, giving women athletes the same conditions and experiences as the men.

>> Women and men have the same amount of prize money

Gender bias is undermining our social fabric and devalues all of us. It is not just a human rights issue; it is a tremendous waste of the world’s human potential. By denying women equal rights, we deny half the population a chance to live life at its fullest. Political, economic and social equality for women will benefit all the world’s citizens. Together we can eradicate prejudice and work for equal rights and respect for all.
