EUROPEAN GENDER EQUALITY WEEK 2021

EUROPEAN GENDER EQUALITY WEEK 2021

This week had been dominated by the second European Parliament's Gender Equality Week. Initiated by the Committee on Women’s Rights and Gender Equality, all parliamentary committees were invited to hold events addressing gender issues and many followed the call, showing the cross-cutting importance of the topic.

The Committee on Culture and Education used the initiative to reflect on gender equality in the EU funding programmes and expressed the need to further contribute to closing the gender gap in professions and also promoting a level playing field for all athletes regardless of their gender.

Additionally, in an exchange of views with Viviane Hoffman, Deputy Director-General for Education, Youth, Sport and Culture the fundamentality of gender equality had been highlighted by pointing out that it is one of the core principles of the current EU work plan for Sport.
Moreover, the High-Level Group on gender equality in Sport is expected to present recommendations in late 2021 or early 2022 to further nourish the good practice examples of Erasmus+ grassroots initiatives or the #BeInclusive sport awards.
