TANE promotes gender equality in the society. It presents motions and proposals, as well as issues statements, to develop legislation affecting gender equality and other gender equality measures. In addition, the Council organises events and seminars, produces publications and other materials and informs about current issues.

TANE may establish subcommittees and different working groups to support its activities. The subcommittees are experts in their respective fields and they prepare decisions for the Council. The subcommittees also initiate debate and propose motions.
