Imeacht eile - FEMM
European Gender Equality Week 2020

At the initiative of the FEMM Committee, the European Parliament is holding its first ever European Gender Equality Week during the last week of October 2020.

Leagan níos faide

2020 is a special year, marking the 25th anniversary of the Beijing Declaration and Platform for Action. This important milestone provides an excellent opportunity to discuss the achievements and future challenges for the advancement of girls' and women's rights and gender equality. Therefore, the European Parliament is holding for the first time European Gender Equality Week. It gives a very much-needed input to the long lasting battle against women's discrimination and gender inequality as well as more visibility and recognition to the gender mainstreaming in all policy areas.

Most committees taking part in the Gender Equality Week are organizing events during the last days of October, while some others will look into gender mainstreaming aspects in their fields of competences later this year.

The workshop on open spaces at EU institutions versus traditional work spaces will focus on the difference between different kind of offices spaces. It will answer the question on advantages and disadvantages, how Covid-19 has influence on the use of office space and employee well-being at work. The workshop will also focus on the current situation in the EU institutions regarding work spaces.

The concept of open office spaces is a topic of discussion. While it could contribute to the reduction of costs, improve team work and communication it affects employees overall well-being and productivity. The future of open office space is unsure with the outbreak of Covid-19, as diseases spread faster in an open office space where people are closer to one another. Some researchers suggest that open office space will continue for those companies that need a high level of team work and to save costs in the long term. The use of open office space should be based on the common goal of the company and they should communicate these goals to their employees. The best way to let employees adjust better to an open office space is to include them in the designing process. This will make the goals of the new work environment clear and helps them to create the best working space for them. In the end this could help to avoid the pitfalls of open office spaces.
