The Women’s European Council is the largest European summit dedicated to gender equality and gathering Members of the European Parliament, European Commissioners, Heads of States and Governments, as well as, civil societies to provide public policies and programs with a gender approach.
To respond to one of the biggest challenges of the forthcoming years, the European Women Alliance (EWA), together with the Vice-Presidents of the European Parliament, Roberta Metsola, Katarina Barley, Heidi Hauttala, Dita Charanzová, Klára Dobrev, Dimitrios Papadimoulis and Evelyn Regner, Chair of the FEMM Committee, will launch a spin-off of the Women’s European Council focused on women’s jobs: WomenAtWork2030. The launch event is postponed to the first quarter of 2022.
“WomenAtWork2030, a road map for employment, skills and social protection” is a permanent forum until 2030 gathering EU leaders, members of national parliaments, trade unions, business sector, academia and civil society. Through a gender perspective, WomenAtWork2030 will assess the progress of national labour and social policies towards the achievement set by the National Plans of Recovery and Resilience and the European Pillar of Social Rights Action Plan.
The launch event is postponed to the first quarter of 2022. EWA will provide in due time the date of the meeting as soon as the European Parliament will confirm the possibility to host events again.
