The consultation meeting "From Practices with Potential to Good Practices in the area of Women's Entrepreneurship" will take place in Vilnius on 19-20 June 2014.

This meeting is organised within the framework of EIGE’s work on good practices on gender mainstreaming. The event represents a key step in EIGE’s approach to the dissemination of good practices in gender mainstreaming and the involvement of relevant stakeholders is a pillar of such an approach.

The expert meeting will provide an occasion to present some good practices identified in the area of women entrepreneurship (training, networking and funding) as well as to exchange and share experiences and approaches among stakeholders and experts.

This meeting will primarily target stakeholders and experts from the EU Member States, involved in the development and implementation of policies and practices to promote economic independence and access to better jobs and working conditions. 

The objective of the meeting is to identify and agree on main political recommendations on how to promote entrepreneurship to enhance women economic and social empowerment and to increase women’s participation in labour market.

Participants will have the opportunity to reflect and discuss on the good practices presented and they will have the chance to provide an overview on national experiences and approaches. They will furthermore have the chance to establish networks and disseminate and transfer the results of the meeting.
