Commissioner of Digital Society and Economy, Mariya Gabriel, has launched a new campaign titled, ‘No Women No Panel’. The campaign commits Commissioner Gabriel to ensure that every panel or public event that she is invited to has at least one other woman. The campaign aims to raise awareness of the importance of having a gender-balance in panels and public events.
The campaign has already received support from several other Commissioners including Commissioner Corina Cretu, Commissioner Violeta Bulc, Commissioner Tibor Navracsics, Commissioner Neven Mimica, and the Vice-President for the Euro and Social Dialogue, Valdis Dombrovskis.
The European Commission has also endorsed the initiative, as they strongly support promoting gender equality in Europe, which has become a high priority.
