Discriminations reinforce Social inequalities Discriminations can be related to origin, sex and sexualorientation, ethnic, national or race belonging, political opinions, trade-union activities, religious beliefs, genetical features, age, physical appearance, patronym, handicap, as defined in article 225-1 of penal code. When cumulated,these various types of discriminations reinforce social inequalities . UNITE DEVELOPPEMENT MISSION STRATEGIE

  34. Discriminations create injustice Discriminations create injustice that affect «living together». A great number of inhabitants of Ile de France are affecte by discriminations namely people living in poor areas especially in what concerns access to accomodation, employment, education, training, entertainment, healthcare… their relationship with institutions, public services and agents UNITE DEVELOPPEMENT MISSION STRATEGIE

  35. Commitment into action The Ile de France Région has wished to create a global framework for action and to reinforce even more its commitment into action by the implementation of a determinate global policy in the field of fight against discriminations, namely by strongly supporting innovative projects Throughout its systems, its major contracts, and its Stratégic plans, On the whole territory UNITE DEVELOPPEMENT MISSION STRATEGIE

  36. The Régional commitment The Ile de France Région already contributes in its systems to the prévention and fight against inequalities and discriminations, particularly in what concerns gender inequality. In order to combat stereotypes information and awareness actions are required as well as the training of beneficiaries The evaluation of systems with indicators and the inclusion of compelling articles in contracts and specifications is also necessary. UNITE DEVELOPPEMENT MISSION STRATEGIE

  37. The commitment of the Région Throughout the régional life long training scheme which wasvoted by the regional assembly 28th june 2007, the Région clearly declares it wants to fight against inequalities and discriminations in the 5th strategic principle of this plan In apprenticeship, the Contrat of Objectives and means hasalsotaken this aspect into consideration dimension by encouraging actions in favour of fight against discriminations and an increased access of girls in more diversified curricula. UNITE DEVELOPPEMENT MISSION STRATEGIE

  38. 5 main axis to fight against discriminations Aim at giving a new impulse to regional commitment • Publicly declare the commitment of the Région • Support and assist innovative projects on territories • Inform and train actors bénéficiaries of régional systems to fighting against discriminations in order to create a common and shared culture • Organise a network of partnerships and evaluate actions • Improve and reinforce the knowledge of discriminatory mechanisms UNITE DEVELOPPEMENT MISSION STRATEGIE

  39. Axis 1 : publicly declare the commitment of the Région • Improve the visibility of régional action • encourage the involvement of the Région, on highly symbolic dates (8th march etc.) • régional informationcampaigns UNITE DEVELOPPEMENT MISSION STRATEGIE

  40. Axis 2 : Support and assist innovative projects on territories • The projects can be proposed by associations, social partners, representing either employers and employees, private companies, public institutions, training organisations, local authorities. • La Région will endeavour to enhance and publicise innovative actions in this field and will organise moments of exchange and debates on good practises. UNITE DEVELOPPEMENT MISSION STRATEGIE

  41. Axis 3 : Inform and train actors and bénéficiaries Information and training of all régional actors to fight against discriminations in groups where apprenticeship trainers, training organisations, association local leaders, will be able to meet each other, is a strong orientation of régional action. These multi targeted training actions will come in addition to existing sectorial systems which train local missions for young unemployed people and apprentice ship training centers UNITE DEVELOPPEMENT MISSION STRATEGIE

  42. Axis 4 : Organise a network of partners and assess supported actions • The partners will come from institutions such as la Haute Autorité de Lutte contre les Discriminations et pour l’Égalité (HALDE), l’Agence Nationale pour la Cohésion Sociale et pour l’Égalité des Chances (ACSE), • An axis of partnership with socioeconomic actors also seems crucial. A common action of the main stake holders of the Région is absolutely necessary to fight against discriminations, particularly in the field of employment. The commitment of some big companies in the diversity charta is an illustration of this trend. • La COPIRE, (Commission Paritaire Interprofessionnelle Régionale de l’Emploi) is then one of the main partners of the Région to intervene on the fight against discriminations in an open minded attitude towards social partners, either representing employers or représenting employees. • Regional action will also takes its examples from abroad namely european programmes . UNITE DEVELOPPEMENT MISSION STRATEGIE

  43. Axis 5 : Improve and reinforce the knowledge of discriminatory mechanisms • The lack of knowledge, and namely of statistics is a limit to evaluation. • the Ile-de-France region is aware of the need to have detailed statistics available on its systems, without stigmatising its publics. • Moreover, collecting and disseminating gendered statistics in all the systems and projects suported by the Région is also an essential strategic process which has been recommended for long by the European Union.
