The European Commission, in cooperation with the European External Action Service and the German Presidency of the European Union, will hold a high-level event on 25 November 2020 to launch the new EU Gender Action Plan – An ambitious agenda for gender equality and women’s empowerment in EU external action (GAP III).

In cooperation with UN Women, we will also present the work of the Generation Equality Forum and its Action Coalitions and reflect about the EU contribution to it.

The event provides an opportunity to participate in multi-stakeholder discussions and gain insights into innovative approaches to addressing the gender gap in key thematic areas, including freedom from violence, access to sexual and reproductive health and rights, economic and social rights and empowerment, equal participation and leadership of women and girls, the Women, Peace and Security agenda, the gender dimension to green transition and digitalisation policies.
