On the occasion of the International Women’s Day celebrated worldwide on 8 March 2021, the ENI CBC Med Programme is launching a communication campaign to highlight the remarkable contribution of women to Euro-Mediterranean relations.

The campaign, under the title “Women, leaders of Euro-Mediterranean cooperation”, will be carried out through the dissemination on the Programme’s website and social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) of a series of digital “postcards” depicting how women from across the Mediterranean are essential players of cooperation processes at institutional, project and people-to-people level.

The ENI CBC Med Programme will also hold a 100% female-led webinar on 8 March on the topic of “Women entrepreneurs: an essential factor to achieve real gender equality in the Mediterranean”.

The event aims at discussing the cultural, financial, regulatory barriers that still exist for women to fully express their potential in the business sector and how these barriers can effectively be removed to boost women’s entrepreneurship, increase their opportunities in responsibility positions and facilitate access to credit.

Discussions will feature expert speakers from both sides of the Mediterranean and will showcase the stories of aspiring entrepreneurs who are currently developing or enhancing their businesses through the support projects funded by the ENI CBC Med Programme.
FOLLOW the webinar here (8 March – 11 am to 1 pm – CET).
