Study on gender training in the European Union mapping, research and stakeholders' engagement (2012–13). Lithuania.
The national programme for equal opportunities for women and men 2010–14 presents policy commitments to gender mainstreaming in Lithuania. The action plan for the implementation of the national programme makes specific reference to gender training for public sector employees. All ministries are implementing the national programme, which foresees the organisation of seminars and other gender training activities for ministries. Gender training activities are also foreseen for local/regional public administration staff. In fact, the national plan has, as one of its objectives, to encourage municipalities/regional government to take actions for equal opportunities for women and men. At ministry level, an Interministerial Committee of Equal Opportunities for Women and Men has been established and includes representatives from all ministries. Furthermore, most ministries have a staff training plan/strategy, in which only a small number of ministries has included gender training as regards their immediate needs.
