Equality men women

Guide to professional equality in the Euroregion

The Pyrénées Méditerranée Euroregion decided to collect data and perform a study on work equality and the number of women workers in different sectors and fields at the Euroregional level. The aim of the project was to set up a cooperative Euroregional initiative on this issue. Visit the link to the study..


In addition, theInstitut de Recherche Action en Sociologie Sémiotique et Communication (IRASS or the Institute of Research Action in Semiotic Sociology and Communication) created an online guide to professional equality : www.http://www.irass.org/egalite/.


This site is a tool to collect information about actions initiated in the field and to promote best practices:


- In favor of young women by fighting against sexist representations of different jobs to help women break into traditionally “masculine” fields where women are underrepresented,
- In terms of workplace equality and the promotion of women entrepreneurs


The purpose of this site is to provide information and promote best practices in terms of workplace equality between men and women, to foster exchanges and to promote the development of Pyrénées-Méditerranée Euroregional cooperative projects.


Rencontre Eurorégionale de l’Egalité (the Euroregional Gathering on Equality)
(26 November 2012)

In the wake of the first Euroregional meetings on equality between men and women organized in 2007 and 2010, the Midi-Pyrénées Region, in its capacity as President of the Euroregion, hosted a Euroregional Meeting on Equality on November 26, 2012.


Covering the different phases of the social and professional lives of women, this event collected concrete testimonies from women entrepreneurs in the Midi-Pyrénées, Languedoc-Roussillon and the Baleearic Islands, involved in business incubators and actively engaged in fighting workplace stereotypes. These testimonies were collected under the aegis of the CREAMED project, aimed at setting up networks of companies in the Pyrénées-Méditerranée Euroregion and driven by the GECT Pyrénées-Méditerranée.

The event was promoted on a European level via its integration in the event, la Semaine européenne des PME (A week long event devoted to European SMEs), organized by the European Commission.
