Economic Empowerment of Women

12 December 2016


"Together for Equality"

The EU's achievements in fostering equality between women and men have helped to change the lives of many European citizens for the better. The significant progress made by the EU over the last decades can be traced to equal treatment legislation, integration of the gender perspective into all other policies, as well as specific measures for the advancement of women.

However, we are far from reaching equality, in particular in the labour market participation, economic independence, pay and pensions and equality in leadership positions.

We invite you to come to listen to and exchange views with our high level speakers from both the public and private sectors on what the EU and Japan can learn from each other to shape a modern and more gender-balanced society.

The conference languages are English and Japanese with simultaneous interpretation
