On Monday 15 March 2021, the two Networks of Members in charge of Gender Mainstreaming in the Committees and in the standing Delegations of the European Parliament held a first joint meeting.

Members exchanged views on gender mainstreaming in the EU external policies and heard presentations on this topic by Ms Charlotte Isaksson, Senior Gender Advisor at the European External Action Service (EEAS), and Ms Barbara Limanowska, Gender Mainstreaming team leader of the European Institute on Gender Equality.

The Gender Mainstreaming Network promotes gender mainstreaming in the work of Parliament's committees and delegations. Committees and delegations have appointed Members responsible for gender mainstreaming who take part in regular meetings and share experiences and best practice in their fields of activity.
