Event description

Description

Introduction

Most of the inequality comes from the stereotyping of roles, duties and professions based on gender. For women to empower themselves, they need practical support from men at home, coaching and mentoring for both women and men understanding how to balance work and home adequately. For gender equality to become a reality, men and women must work together collaboratively (teamwork).

Conference attendees as well as non attendees are invited to answer

a 3 minutes-long online questionnaire prior to the 15th of November 2019- The questionnaire was designed by WorkLife Hub. The results will be presented at the start of the conference.
