High-Level seminar on gender equality in the labour market
The role of gender equality bodies
This High Level Seminar is the first event dedicated to gender equality organised by Equinet following the incorporation of the work of the former Network of Gender Equality Bodies.
EIGE's Head of Operations Thérèse Murphy will deliver the keynote speech on "Equality bodies and the advancement of gender equality: an EIGE perspective"
The seminar aims at sharing with EU level stakeholders experiences and expertise coming from equality bodies’ work on the promotion of gender equality, in particular relating to the implementation of EU legislation and policies in the field.
It also aims at providing equality bodies with an overview and a platform for dialogue on EU developments concerning the fight against gender inequalities.
The seminar will strive to:
- Allow an exchange between equality bodies, EU institutions and stakeholders on how to best cooperate for the promotion of gender equality and effectively tackle gender inequalities;
- Present equality bodies’ experiences in the implementation of EU policies and legislation in the framework of gender equality in the labour market;
- Provide a platform for discussion on key priorities, best practices and possible future developments at EU and national level;
- Position Equinet and national equality bodies’ work in the field of gender equality at EU level.
