    Euroopa Majandus- ja Sotsiaalkomitee kutsub kodanikuühiskonna organisatsioone ja üksikisikuid kogu Euroopa Liidus üles kandideerima kodanikuühiskonna auhinnale. Sel aastal keskendutakse algatustele, mis võitlevad sooliste stereotüüpide vastu, edendades naiste ja meeste võrdseid võimalusi ning võrdset kohtlemist kõigis majandus- ja ühiskonnaelu valdkondades.

    Euroopa Majandus- ja Sotsiaalkomitee kuulutas välja konkursi 2019. aasta kodanikuühiskonna auhinnale. Käesoleva aasta teema on „Rohkem naisi Euroopa ühiskonnas ja majanduses” ning auhinnaga tunnustatakse innovaatilisi algatusi ja projekte, mille eesmärk on võidelda naiste ja meeste võrdsete võimaluste ja nende võrdse kohtlemise eest kõigis majandus- ja ühiskonnaelu valdkondades.

  • Euroopa Majandus- ja Sotsiaalkomitee leiab, et kuigi üldiselt on soolise võrdõiguslikkuse valdkonnas tehtud edusamme, võtab selles tempos naiste meestega võrdsustumine Euroopas rohkem kui sajand.

    Euroopa Majandus- ja Sotsiaalkomitee nõuab tungivalt, et Euroopa Liit ja liikmesriigid seaksid poliitilises tegevuskavas soolise võrdõiguslikkuse esikohale, pidades silmas muret, et hiljutised naiste õiguste vastased rünnakud Euroopas võivad tõsiselt ohustada naiste ja meeste võrdõiguslikkuse edendamist.

  • "Women: the largest disruptive force in business", Rick Zednik, Madi Sharma

    Europe loses EUR 370 billion a year due to the gender employment gap. What's more, it is statistically proven that companies with more gender-diverse management boards produce better results. So, why might it take another 217 years to close the economic gender gap at global level, as estimated by the World Economic Forum? On 17 December, high-level speakers from the worlds of business, politics and NGOs came together with members of the Employers' Group to discuss how to leverage the immense potential that women could bring to the European economy.

  • It needs different and holistic approaches to address gender inequality, says the EESC

    The digital gender gap is a consequence of discrimination against women, which already starts in early childhood, the EESC points out. In its exploratory opinion on the digital gender gap, drafted at the European Parliament's request, the EESC suggests a multi-level approach and calls for holistic policies addressing different sources of inequality.

  • Thematic debate on the rural pact #3

    In the context of the European Gender Equality Week and as part of its section meeting, the NAT section will host a public debate on gender equality and youth in rural areas.

  • Causes, consequences and policy solutions

    The ECO Section of the EESC will organise a public debate with the title: "Gender inequality in access to financial markets. Causes, consequences and policy solutions" in order to present the views of different actors and discuss on the gender gaps in the access to funding and on investment.

  • To prepare its opinion on "Strengthening the role and independence of equality bodies", the European Economic and Social Committee is organising a hybrid public hearing.

    Equality bodies combat discrimination at the national level through prevention and assistance to victims. However, their tasks and resources vary significantly across EU countries, resulting in different levels of effectiveness.

    The hearing will address how to improve the powers of equality bodies to better fight discrimination, by gathering inputs from institutions, social partners and other civil society organisations.

  • Hearing of the Fundamental Rights and Rule of Law Group

    Recent developments in the US and some European countries have shown that rights acquired by women are not irreversible. This particularly applies to sexual and reproductive health and rights. These questions are a matter of individual rights but also of public health, as sexual and reproductive health services are an essential part of comprehensive healthcare provision. Societal debates on the questions tend more and more towards polarisation, at the expense of women who can become deprived of their free and informed choice. The hearing will gather the view of civil society on these developments.
