Eurocadres and CEPLIS announce joint position paper
Both organisations continue their work on gender equality.
Eurocadres are happy to announce the publication of a joint position paper with CEPLIS - The European Council of the Liberal Professions (CEPLIS), on the advancement of gender equality throughout the European Union.
Gender equity has been a longstanding call of European Professionals, who have continuously called for European and national action to guarantee parity regardless of worker’s gender.
Eurocadres and CEPLIS have been encouraged by the action from the European institutions over the past number of months, yet more must be done to improve the current gender pay gap of 14.1% (with women in the EU earn on average almost 15% less per hour than men) and the pension pay gap of 29%. Our move towards gender equality can be accelerated through the adoption of the following key strategies.
The position paper covers a number of important aspects, including:
- Delivering true pay transparency
- Combating gender-based violence
- Promoting the role of women in STEM/ STEAM
- Closing the care gap
- Women in leadership
“We have worked extensively in the field of gender equality over the past number of years, and are delighted to continue this work with CEPLIS. Both organisations are committed to delivering gender parity in Europe, and will be advancing our work in Brussels in the near future”.
Highlighting the significance of this collaboration, Eurocadres President Nayla Glaise said: “We have worked extensively in the field of gender equality over the past number of years, and are delighted to continue this work with CEPLIS. CEPLIS and Eurocadres have previously launched joint initiatives that have proven to be successful, and we are hoping this is no different.
Both organisations are committed to delivering gender parity in Europe, and will be advancing our work in Brussels in the near future. With momentum behind the push for gender equality, it is right that professionals now continue the push at the European level”.
