Journalist Thematic Network meeting, 17-18 June 2019, Dublin
This meeting involves journalists from around the European Union. The focus of the meeting is on the gender pay gap and EIGE will present its latest findings on the topic. We will explore the different reasons underpinning it and see what measures are helping to close the gap in different countries across the European Union.
Colleagues from Eurofound will talk about the experience of women in management. We will learn more about the obstacles preventing women from becoming managers and see what can be done to change this situation.
We will also hear from two guest speakers about what is happening in the Irish context in relation to the gender pay gap. We will hear from the sides of both business and the trade unions and learn more about a new proposal on pay transparency to reduce the gender pay gap.
During the meeting, we will discuss the main gender equality issues making headlines around the EU.
EIGE will also present its new gender-sensitive communications guide and give a heads-up on EIGE’s upcoming projects.
Participation is by invitation only.
