On 11th and 12th October, the European Youth Forum hosted the “Gender Equality and You” Conference in conjunction with the Austrian Presidency of the Council of the European Union and the Austrian National Youth Forum.

The Conference aimed  at inspiring a positive and open dialogue at eye-level between young people, youth representatives, ministers and other high-level political representatives as well as experts from NGOs, public administration, international and EU bodies.

Bringing gender equality back on the EU’s list of priorities is a common goal of the Trio Presidency of Estonia, Bulgaria and Austria. The aim of the high-level discussion was to have an initial and open exchange of ideas about possible ways to launch these actions and to implement them in a sustainable way.

 

I had the pleasure to facilitate discussion on better labor market inclusion of women.
