Gender balance in business decision-making positions: is the EU on the right track?
On the 14th of October 2013, both the European Parliament Committee on Legal Affairs and the Women’s Rights & Gender Equality Committee adopted their report on the so called “women on board” European Commission Directive proposal. At the same time, the European Commission released its new report on women in decision making and its mid term review of its broader gender equality strategy; the review points out a series of actions envisaged in order to further advance the role of women in the European society. These facts clearly indicate that the debate on gender equality in Europe, which has also included the issue of equal pay, the remedies against unfair treatment at work, as well as the unequal representation of women in politics, has again gained momentum.
We are delighted to invite you to the debate organised by PubAffairs Bruxelles which will be held on November 12th at 19.00 at the premises of Science14 Atrium, rue de la Science, 14-b, Brussels. The debate will concern the issue of gender balance in business decision-making positions.
On Tuesday 14 May 2013, at the premises of Science14 Atrium in Brussels, PubAffairs Bruxelles hosted a debate concerning the issue of restoring confidence in the eurozone and in the European project in the light of the Cyprus bailout. The event was moderated by Mr Leo Cendrowicz, Brussels correspondent for Time magazine, while the discussants were Mrs Rebecca Harms MEP (Greens) and Mr Markus Ferber MEP (EPP).
