In 2007, the agency was nominated the Romanian National Implementing Body of the 2007 European Year of Equal Opportunities for All and developed, among other discrimination criteria (ethnic origin, religion, age, sexual orientation and disabilities), a series of activities related to gender equality issues focusing on the importance of having men involved increasingly in promoting equal opportunities between women and men. In the following years, the agency planned a campaign with a special emphasis on work-life balance in order to find different ways of involving men in childcare, fatherhood and parenting.
