Taskforce European Lobbying
At the presidents’ meeting in Brussels in May 2013 the new taskforce “European Lobbying” was officially approved. The main goals of our taskforces are: establishing a lobbying network and raise awareness for lobbying amongst Europe’s federations and clubs. At present we focus on two topics: equal pay for equal work and female presence on corporate boards. Since July a group of 4 women has been working on setting up the taskforce and making contacts with major organizations already working on the two topics (e.g. European Commission, European Economic and Social Committee).
Further short term objectives are:
- to produce relevant contacts amongst decision makers and interest groups
- to create a calendar with all important events taking place in Brussels on our core topics
- to write four summaries of our activity for BPW Europe’s newsletter or blog
- to provide lobbying material for BPW Europe’s federations and adhered clubs
We also will participate actively at some events to strengthen our ties to those organizations and promote the vision and mission of BPW.
