The seminars start with a short movie (Gender Equality’s production), which presents statistics about women's position in the labour market, in education and in politics in Cyprus and the European Union. Then, labour gender equality laws are analysed with special focus on the equal treatment of men and women. Workshops are held about sexual harassment at the work place, gender-neutral job descriptions, direct and indirect discrimination, occupational segregation, sex and gender, institutions where to submit a complaint or ask legal aid or advice and concrete cases of discriminations in employment and occupational training are shown to participants and discussed. Results of research into the media sector in Cyprus and the European Union are then presented.
