Equality between men and women is one of the founding principles and values of the European Union. Yet, women continue to be under-represented in boards and top management teams of companies.

The focus of the GEMA project is on the business level and tries to answer questions of how and why gender balance in economic decision-making can add value to organisations.

The project was conducted in collaboration with the employers’ associations in the South/East European countries of Bulgaria, Croatia, Macedonia and Slovenia, and co-funded by the PROGRESS Programme of the European Union.
