ABOUT THIS EVENT

The consultation meeting "From Practices with Potential to Good Practices on reconciliation" will take place in Vilnius on 22-23 May 2014. This meeting is organised within the framework of EIGE’s work on good practices on gender mainstreaming.

The event represents a key step in EIGE’s approach to the assessment of good practices in gender mainstreaming, and the involvement of relevant stakeholders is a pillar of such an approach.

The aim of the study is to assess practices with potential collected in EU28 and then to identify good practices.

The expert meeting will provide an occasion to exchange and share reflections on experiences and approaches in the field of promoting gender equality in the area of reconciliation with specific focus on self-regulation, awareness-raising and benchmarking.

This meeting will primarily target stakeholders and experts from the EU Member States, involved in the development and implementation of policies and practices to promote economic independence and access to better jobs and working conditions.

The aim is to exchange reflections and experiences around the collected practices with potential and then to identify 9 good practices which will be included in EIGE’s database.

Participants will have the opportunity to provide an effective contribution to the assessment process as well as to the development of further networking and dissemination of the results of the meeting.

Please note that participation in this expert meeting is by invitation only.For more information, please contact the project manager, Maurizio Mosca, at maurizio.mosca@eige.europa.eu.
