1) Objective

The objective of the Call is to support, advance and implement comprehensive policies to promote women’s full enjoyment of rights, gender equality, including work-life balance, equal pay between women and men, women’s empowerment and gender mainstreaming.

More specifically, the call focusses on the following two priorities:

  • Tackling the root causes of the gender care gap by promoting a gender-transformative approach and challenging gender stereotypes with the aim to support promotion of family-friendly practices in companies encouraging the take up of the new rights under the Work-life Balance Directive by both women and men; prevention/protection against any form of unfavourable treatment and discrimination of women during and after pregnancy as well as of women and men who took family leave and flexible work arrangements; raising awareness of the value of care work by reflecting on the appreciation of skills needed for care work; and challenging gender stereotypes that perpetuate the traditional division of labour.
  • Supporting the implementation of the provisions of the Pay Transparency Directive with the aim to foster Member States authorities responsible for implementation of the provision of the Pay Transparency Directive (possibly in cooperation with other public entities, private organisations or international organisations) in developing national guidance and/or tools for gender-sensitive job evaluation and classification systems and in raising awareness of this guidance and/or tools among employers and workers representatives in their respective countries.
