UBC Gender Equality Working Group is searching for new coordinators

For the last 4-5 years the Gender Equally Working Group has been trying to work horizontally in order to strive for mainstreaming gender equality -  in practice to get all other UBC Commissions to promote gender equality when possible. The Gender Equality Working Group has also arranged seminars/conferences to tackle the actual challenges faced in the promotion of gender equality.

Since 2015 the group has been co-ordinated by Helsinki and Gdańsk but with valuable help of active cities in the WG like Kalmar, Kristiansand, Liepāja, Panevėžys, Umeå and Örebro.
