Is it possible to measure gender equality?
for MEPs in EP was hosted by CZE MEP L. Niedermayer with EIGE EF member Pavla Špondrová and Monika Ladmanová from the European Commission. Invitation was accepted by MEPs M. Šojdrová, D. Charanzová, J. Žitňanská, E. Tošenovský, assistants of MEPs and by people from regional representations and media.
The main topic of a discussion was EIGE's Gender Equality Index (the Index). Its results, methodology, advantages and possible disadvantages. An introduction was followed by a vivid discussion concerning not only the Index, but also the directive dealing with women on boards, possibilities for reconciliation of work and private life and conditions on a labour market.
