The EU Women Caucus is a unique and ambitious cross-party and inter-institutional platform for discussion bringing together female leaders in the European Parliament, the European Commission, the Council of the European Union, and the representations of the EU Member States to the European Union.
To stay competitive, the European Union needs to mobilize all the untapped potential and talent of women and remove barriers to female leadership. The number of women in the European Institutions has been increasing since the birth of the EU but much remains to be done to secure the economic gains that come with greater gender balance in the work place. The European Union institutions need to lead by example.
The EU Women Caucus wishes to strengthen the collaboration between politically engaged women in the EU institutions and to build a strong, permanent alliance with the mission of promoting female leadership. A first key step will be to improve the gender balance within the EU institutions.
