Power Up conference 2019
About the Conference
New research from EIGE examines how structures, budgets and the status allocated to gender equality and gender mainstreaming work have changed over the past 10 years. As a new European Parliament and Commission get ready to begin their mandate and the EU's seven-year budget nears finalisation, we believe it is time to talk about how to secure a renewed commitment for gender equality.
Together with Member States, the European Commission, European Parliament, civil society, social partners and academia, we want to discuss how the EU can fulfil its legal and political commitments to gender equality.
