Fostering women's participation in Mediterranean economic life
The Secretariat of the Union for the Mediterranean is organising a conference on “Fostering women’s participation in economic life” to be held in Barcelona from 19 to 21 May 2015. The conference will provide a forum for in-depth dialogue among interested stakeholders.
Discussions will build upon the outcomes of the UfM Ministerial Conference on strengthening the role of women in society (Paris, 11 September 2013) and the first Barcelona Conference on women’s empowerment (26 and 27 March 2014).
This conference on “Fostering women’s participation in economic life”, has three aims: to provide a platform for multi-stakeholder dialogue and facilitate networking and partnerships among promoters of women’s participation and donors; to allow delegates to exchange experiences and best practices while identifying new opportunities; and finally, to promote new regional projects and innovative initiatives.
