Even in the European Union, women are underrepresented in decision-making positions, particularly in politics and business. In 2016, women accounted for 29% of members of the single or lower houses of parliaments. In business leadership, women accounted for just 23.3% of board members of the largest companies (EU Commission).
The are several causes for the underrepresentation of women in decision-making positions such as traditional gender roles, stereotypes and the lack of education and adequate structures.
Our goal is
to ensure women’s equal access to and full participation in power structures and to increase women’s capacity to participate in decision-making and leadership.
