Gender Equality 2016-2019: Discussing Europe's Ambitions

European Parliament, Brussels, Belgium

International Economics Department, Putting Gender Equality on the G20 Agenda

Overview

Promoting gender equality is a core activity for the EU: equality between women and men is a fundamental EU value and objective driving economic growth.

As European Commissioner for Justice, Consumers and Gender Equality, Vĕra Jourová, sets forth the agenda for the strategic engagement of women, this workshop will examine the current situation in EU member states, highlighting opportunities and challenges. The discussion will also explore best practices which have given a boost to gender equality as well as potential tools and measures which can be put in place to increase female labour-market participation and reduce current gaps in pay, earnings and career opportunities between women and men.

Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
