SECOND WEUCO SUMMIT

The second Women’s European Council summit took place on 10 October 2018 at the European Parliament.

Members of the European Parliament, European Commissioners, Representatives of EU member States, women and men from finance, digital industry, data protection, show business, experts of technology and gender policy discussed how to reshape the economy of tomorrow and launched #AnotHer Europe Manifesto for the 2019 European elections.

STRENGTHEN WOMEN’S LEADERSHIP

The second WEUCO summit has been full of content and definitely, gave the kick-off to a public debate involving EU institutions and civil society to change the structure of society and reinvent the economic model, with the aim of achieving an inclusive and sustainable growth.

No public policies, no investments, no algorithms nor new apps are neutral.> They respond to the objectives decision makers and firms want to achieve. Often those objectives are driven mainly by profit and take into account only the condition of white male, excluding women and minorities. Instead, it is an absolute fact that societal and business models driven by value of diversity and inclusiveness are the most successful!

This is the reason why it is key to monitor that the goals society, institutions and companies establish are inclusive and no discriminatory. It is thus key for women being aware about the role we want to play in our society and economy and how we should contribute to shape a better world.

Access to labour market, decent and fair work conditions, welfare state, investments in innovation, education and lifelong learning, respect of ethics principles in the digital economy are crucial issues to pursue equal opportunities and strengthen women’s leadership.

CONCLUSIONS

WEUCO conclusions have put forward key proposals for the European elections of May 2019. On the top of our priorities there is women’s leadership in the European institutions and a set of urgent actions to take from now to build a fairer Europe.
