Gender equality policies have a strong impact on Gross Domestic Product (GDP) - which reflects the living standards within the EU. By 2050, improving gender equality would lead to an increase in EU GDP per capita of 9.6%. This increase is mainly the result of improved employment rates of women and more STEM jobs.
On 8 - 9 June 2017, EIGE is in Berlin presenting its research on gender seggregation in training and the labour market. Segregation narrows employment choices and reinforces gender stereotypes. Therefore, the EU and the Member States must improve the existing gender equality measures to narrow the gender gap in STEM.
