Advisory Committee on equal opportunities for women and men
The Advisory Committee on Equal Opportunities for Women and Men assists the Commission in formulating and implementing the European Union activities aimed at promoting equality between women and men.
The Committee fosters ongoing exchanges of experiences, policies and practices between EU countries and the various parties involved.
To achieve these aims the Committee delivers opinions to the Commission on issues of relevance to the promotion of gender equality in the EU. It comprises representatives of EU countries, social partners at EU level and NGOs.
