published 12 April 2011 updated 27 April 2011

The Equality Committee aims at moving forward the Equality Work Programme. To this end, a substantial two-day program has been planned, including presentations and group discussions on equality challenges deriving from the On the Move for Equality World Women’s Conference such as:

  • Gender stereotypes in education
  • Reconciliation of work and family responsibilities
  • Economic empowerment of women teachers
  • Unions as places of diversity, equality and empowerment

Participants will be expected to present good practice examples of the implementation of Equality Committee Recommendations in their unions (find the Recommendations attached):

  • Recommendation on the Impact of the economic crisis on women and equality: How do unions mitigate the effects? (2010)
  • Recommendation on Equality in the Unions (2010)
  • Recommendation on the Equal Pay Day (2010)
  • Recommendation on Eliminating Violence against Women (2010)
