About the Conference

While individual countries have made progress in the fight for equal rights, there is still a long way to go before gender equality can be fully achieved on a global scale. Various factors go into measuring gender equality. Currently, the average global gender gap is 31.4%.

Gender equality is one of the founding values of the European Union and a key objective of the Sustainable Development Goals.

Inequalities of opportunity remain a key challenge that affects advanced and transition economies alike. What are the projects and efforts that answer major problems like the access to finance, access to skills, employment and sustainable livelihoods and gender-responsive services and public goods facilitating women to participate fully in economic and public life?
