Webinar: Relevance of a national Gender Equality discourse in R&I
25 April 2023Back to events
The webinar, part of WP7 capacity building activities, was held online on the 25th of April 2023 and was dedicated to all GENDERACTIONplus consortium members.
The aim of the workshop was to discuss the relevance of a national policy discourse for the successful implementation of gender equality policies in R&I. Participants became familiar with what is meant by a gender equality discourse and what are central elements of a gender equality discourse. They became aware of the relevance of a comprehensive national policy discourse for a successful implementation of gender equality policies in R&I at national level.
The workshop discussed the need for and advantages of embedding the national gender equality discourse in the European discourse, and the ways in which the EU and national levels can support developments in each. National authorities acknowledge their responsibility for pursuing a national gender equality discourse and build capacities to develop their national impact plan. RFOs acknowledge their responsibility to establish a gender equality discourse within their institutions and to actively contribute within the framework of their remit to the national gender equality discourse.
Participants reflected on possible starting points or supporting factors for developing a gender equality discourse.
