Gender Training conference in Vilnius 13-14 November, 2012

On 13-14 November 2012, EIGE is holding a European conference ‘Advancing Gender Training to Support Effective Gender Mainstreaming’ in Vilnius, Lithuania. The conference will bring together: the representatives of institutions that commission gender training, gender trainers, researchers and gender equality experts. It will provide an opportunity to exchange practices on gender training with the view to improving knowledge of policy makers to effectively mainstream gender.

The conference is organised in the framework of EIGE’s two-year project on gender training in the EU. The Institute aims to collect information and facilitate dialogue on gender training for better gender mainstreaming. At the end of 2012, EIGE will launch an EU-wide database of gender trainers and training resources.
