Time for Equality at the 2nd European Forum on Best Practices in Gender Equality – La Grande Soirée de l’Egalité des Genres

On 4th October Time For Equality will take part in the 2nd European Forum on Best Practices in Gender Equality-organized by Inspiring Wo-Men and the Luxembourg Chambre of Commerce in partnership with ESSEC Business School and Sacred Heart University Alumni Association.

Rosa Brignone will moderate the Round Table: Gender training in education.

Introducing efficiently gender training in education is crucial to promoting gender equality and changing gender stereotypes at an early age. Is support and training of teachers crucial? Is there a need of a broad political long-term commitment to gender equality in the field of education by the key stakeholders? How important is the legal and strategic framework for education ? Is enough working with teachers and students or should parents also be involved, and if yes, how? How can girls be attracted to typically male fields of study and vice versa? What are effective ways of raising awareness of gender biases that restrict the economic and social role of girls and women?
