Enhancing Female Participation in Social Dialogue – MCESD Report

The MCESD commissioned a report to analyse female participation in social dialogue.

The study found that 25% of representatives in social dialogue are females. Nevertheless, participation is primarily merit-based and no attempts discourage females from being part of social dialogue. Rather, the situation has been improving over time and is reflective of the market itself. With a strong focus on capabilities rather than gender, recommendations were made to encourage and enable participation through flexibility, visibility and engagement of social dialogue forums.

This report was part-financed by the European Social Fund – Operational Programme II – European Structural and Investment Funds 2014-2020.
