This report assesses the role of the social partners in advancing gender equality in Europe. It explores the actions taken within the different national frameworks of industrial relations and against the ranking of the Member States on the Gender Equality Index. Overall, significant actions are being taken by European and national social partner organisations and companies in support of gender equality. These tend to put the emphasis on campaigning and educational activities and the integration of work–life balance measures in national policies or collective agreements. The research also shows that while national peak-level social partner organisations have implemented a limited number of initiatives aimed at improving their internal gender equality performance, the representation of women in decision-making remains relatively weak.

    Arbejdsmarkedsparter og ligestilling mellem kønnene i Europa

    Forfatter(e): 
    Eurofound

    I denne rapport vurderes arbejdsmarkedsparternes rolle med hensyn til at fremme ligestillingen mellem kønnene i Europa. Der ses nærmere på de tiltag, der er truffet inden for de forskellige nationale arbejdsmarkedsrammer og i forhold til medlemsstaternes placering i indekset for fremskridt på ligestillingsområdet. Generelt gennemfører europæiske og nationale arbejdsmarkedsparter og virksomheder vigtige tiltag til støtte for ligestillingen mellem kønnene. Disse har hovedsagelig fokus på kampagne- og oplysningsaktiviteter og integreringen af tiltag, der sigter mod at skabe balance mellem arbejdsliv og privatliv, i nationale politikker eller kollektive overenskomster. Det fremgår også af undersøgelsen, at selv om førende nationale arbejdsmarkedsorganisationer har gennemført et begrænset antal initiativer med henblik på at forbedre deres interne resultater på ligestillingsområdet, er kvinders repræsentation i beslutningstagningen fortsat forholdsvis svag.
