6-7 November 2014 in Rome, Italy
The Italian Presidency of the Council of the European Union and the European Commission were jointly organising this High level event to stress the importance of Equality policies in the European Union.
High Level representatives of governments from the EU Member States and key stakeholders were invited to discuss and identify current challenges and future paths to make Equality a reality for all.
The event also aimed to promote equal rights and equal opportunities for all in the EU, and to share knowledge and experiences in order to develop policies and more effective ways of counteracting all forms of discrimination and fighting stereotypes.
The event brought together around 200 high-level delegates working on Equality issues (governments, NGOs, social partners, media, academics, independent experts, etc.) from EU Member States and acceding countries.
The event was followed live.
