IndustriAll Europe reiterates its call on governments, policy-makers and business to adopt an economic agenda ‘not counting on women, but counting women in’ by breaking the glass walls!

Women continue to be held back:

The figures are stark:

In the five years 2005-2010 the gender segregation of jobs actually increased across Europe!

“In 2016, it’s about time to break the glass walls! European industry needs to attract more women. The under-representation of women is a waste of skills for our sectors. We need to fight and transform gender stereotypes in industry to make it more appealing to women and to demonstrate that women have a future in our sectors.” Bart Samyn, industriAll Europe Deputy General Secretary
