The European Network of Women in Decision-making in Politics and the Economy was launched on 2 June. The network, supported by the European Commission, aims to provide a platform at EU level for successful strategies to improve gender balance in decision-making positions across Europe. The group currently consists of 15 existing networks.
The President of the European Women’s Lobby Kirsti Kolthoff, as well as Sonja Lokar, member of the EWL Slovenian coordination are members of the network. In the meeting they informed the group about the EWL 50/50 campaign. The network has also created a subgroup on women in political decision making which will focus its work on strategies to increase women’s representation in the EP in next years elections.
