CEMR experts get active for equality

The members of the CEMR expert group on gender equality got together on Monday, 23 October to exchange on advocacy and knowledge milestones for 2017. It was also the opportunity to discuss CEMR’s 2018 conference on Equality, Diversity and Inclusion, as well as to prepare an action plan to follow up on our ten key priorities on gender equality.

Join hundreds of local and regional leaders, and discover how to build communities that value everyone

Picture this: a society with a diversity of citizens, in which all are included and all are equal. Its citizens have a higher quality of life and they are in the best environment to unleash their full potential.

This society is already a reality in many towns, cities and regions. We want to make this a reality everywhere in Europe. Come to the Council of European Municipalities and Regions (CEMR) conference from 11 to 13 June 2018. Exchange with mayors, regional leaders and all those who are committed to equality, diversity and inclusion. Among the topics at hand, we will discuss human rights, public management and services, employment, intersectional discrimination, the UN Sustainable Development Goals and the European Charter for Equality of Women and Men in Local Life.

Our 2018 conference in Bilbao is the place to share ideas and discover how to build local and regional communities that value everyone. Because in Bilbao and beyond, differences unite us.
