The President and the Director exchanged views on gender equality issues and the efforts of EIGE in supporting EU and Member State policies.

The President was particularly interested in the Gender Equality Index and its connection to the European policies, more in particular Europe 2020. EIGE intends to make the Gender Equality Index public at a EU Conference in Brussels in June of this year.
