As an outcome of the “Women in Science, Innovation and Technology in the Digital Age” conference held in Budapest on 6-8 March 2011, a Gender Action Plan for the Digital Agenda with eight focus areas was drawn up.
In this context, Commissioner Neelie Kroes has decided to include a “Women for Smart Growth” workshop at the Digital Agenda Assembly in Brussels on 16-17 June, at which the Gender Action Plan focus areas will be discussed.
To explore the Gender Action Plan topic “Creating positive images through role models, awareness campaigns, TV programmes, video games & the World Expo 2015 in Milan,” we have started a virtual working group — and have launched the first in a series of short surveys on “Female Role Models” — and would like to encourage your participation.
Please join our social network (links below), take the first survey on “Media & Women Role Models,” and join in the discussion!
