Gender Equality Index 2017 Conference

Woensdag 11 oktober 2017 09:00-17:00 | Justus Lipsius building - Wetstraat 175 - 1000 Bruxelles
Gender Equality Index 2017 Conference

The European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE) will release the third edition of the Gender Equality Index for the EU on 11 October 2017.

The conference will provide a forum for around 300 decision-makers and practitioners to discuss the findings of the Gender Equality Index 2017. We will look at recent trends and seek solutions to gender inequalities in the current political and economic context.

The upcoming Gender Equality Index provides a broader scope to understand trends and progress in gender equality in the EU. Its satellite domain of intersecting inequalities reveals some of the vast gender imbalances within a few selected groups of women and men based on age, disability, family type, country of birth and education. With the availability of new indicators, this edition also provides new data for social power and health behaviour.

The conference will take place on 11 October from 09:00-17:00 in the Justus Lipsius building, Rue de la Loi 175, 1000 Brussels, Belgium. Please be aware that access to the building requires you to pass a tight security check. In order to allow a smooth start, you are kindly encouraged to start registering 8:00 am.
