Work-Life Balance And Gender Equality

On 19 July 2017, EU social protection and labour ministers met in Tallinn to discuss issues of work-life balance and gender equality. The ministers exchanged views and best practices on the reconciliation of work and private life with a special focus on the role of men in care responsibilities, stating that: “Europe has a lot to gain – financially and in terms of people’s well-being – from a more equal sharing of care responsibilities.”

Additionally, the Trio of Estonia and the following two Presidencies, Bulgaria and Austria, signed a joint declaration on concrete measures to be taken during their Presidencies to promote gender equality.
