Funds for: Promoting equality between men and women over the life cycle
Main beneficiaries: Public authorities

Priorities and funded actions:

Objective
* Promote equality between women and men and to advance gender mainstreaming

Priorities
* Support Member States in raising awareness and tackling gender stereotypes with regard to roles in work and in private life, and in particular with regard to reconciliation issues (including the promotion of the uptake of family-related leaves by men), taking into account national specificities, complemented by EU broad common messages;
* Support measures which will not only have consequences on the short term with regard to better work-life balance for all workers but would also allow more women to (re)enter the labour market and tackle the gender pay and pensions gaps;
* Support men and women to make informed choices throughout their lives and to promote good practices in companies

Among financed actions
* Activities tackling negative attitudes and gender stereotypes with regard to care;
* Awareness-raising, education and empowerment activities; in particular, at individual and company level, awareness-raising activities on behaviours of men and women, their superiors and colleagues, concerning the combination of work and private care, attitudes towards certain working patterns by men and women as well as work-life balance friendly workplace practices;
* Exchange of good practice, mutual learning, seminars; in particular, activities promoting good practice examples of companies who address work-life balance for all workers in a comprehensive strategy, including innovative workplace practices in terms of space/time, adapted to different time needs of workers over the life course;
* Capacity-building and training activities for company actors and authorities
