Equality of women and men in local life

Webinar - 17.06.2020

Join us and learn from cities to advance gender equality in Europe and the world
Join us on Friday 26 June for a lively exchange with local leaders, European officials and grassroots activists to discuss how cities are promoting gender equality. The goal? To look at what has changed in the context of COVID-19 and to give a local perspective on the European Union’s internal and international efforts to promote gender equality.

The event comes at a time when the EU is putting in place its Strategy on Gender Equality for the next five years. What’s more, the bloc will adopt a new Gender Action Plan this year, defining how it will promote gender equality worldwide. The question is no longer whether but how to mainstream gender in the EU’s internal and external action, learning from cities’ successful experiences and practices.

The high-level speakers are particularly relevant given this international dimension. Rohey Malick Lowe, the Lord Mayor of Banjul (Gambia), and Souad Abderrahim, the Lord Mayor of Tunis, will outline the situation for women’s equality in their cities. A member of Commissioner for Equality Helena Dalli’s Cabinet will discuss the latest developments in European policies on equality.

The event will also explore the actions of cities and communities in defending gender equality when responding to COVID-19 and will look at the gender-perspective on the COVID-related measures. The participants will define possible recommendations for gender-responsive recovery actions and collaborations.

CEMR will be represented by its Spokesperson on Gender Equality and Local Councillor of Legnano, Silvia Baraldi, and Jaimie Just, Policy Advisor for Equality and Diversity.

The event is being organised the Cities Alliance and CEMR/PLATFORMA. If you would like to participate, please register here.
