Launch of EIGE's Resource & Documentation Centre
Making the right gender equality knowledge available at the right time to the right actors.
We are pleased to announce that EIGE's Resource & Documentation Centre (RDC) will be launched on 1 October 2013.
EIGE’s Resource and Documentation Centre (RDC) is a unique European source of gender equality knowledge. There is a multitude of gender equality actors at the EU and Member States level. The vast amount of data, resources and knowledge in the field of gender equality they produce or deal with are not always easily identified or accessible to decision makers, practitioners, researchers or citizens. The lack of information can considerably slow down the march towards gender equality.
Informing about the existence of relevant resources is a crucial element to strengthen the capacity development for gender mainstreaming in policies and programs, and theidentification of good practices on gender equality and the collection of reliable gender statistics are considered to be important levers for achieving de facto gender equality.
It is in this context that EIGE’s Resource and Documentation Centre (RDC) was designed. Its long-term objective is to put together the memory of all gender equality work at EU and Member State level and to make it accessible to all, actively fostering cooperation between gender equality actors across the EU.
