REFLECT AND REACT: Discrimination of women at work

AEGEE-Bilbao and Equal Rights Working group are happy to present are our the conference: «Reflect & React: Discrimination of women at work»


  • Would you like to attend a great thematic event? Are you interested in gender equality issues and generally want to learn more about making our equal future better?


  • Do you think Equal Rights topics should be more present in AEGEE? It’s time for discussions.


✅ If the answer is yes, then apply to the Equal Right Working Group conference organized in Bilbao!  Dare to take the challenge! It’s time to become an active citizen❗️


This Conference is oriented to every AEGEEan who shows interest in Gender Discrimination. The Conference will focus especially on discrimination in the labour market, but it will also touch upon other obstacles encountered by women in different areas of life. The female labour participation rate in Spain has almost reached the EU average, although it started from clearly lower levels. Today, there are still reports that confirm that women have more difficulties in finding a job, face more obstacles to be promoted and in general are paid less.

The aim of this conference is to raise awareness about different forms of discrimination, especially in the labour market, and reflect on how to tackle it. In this Conference we intend to offer a wide range of sessions in order to empower young people to take action against the discrimination of women in the labour market.

At the same time, participants will have the opportunity to meet new people, and discuss how to make AEGEE and their own local more inclusive and equal. Besides, they will have a lot of fun with the social program.

But… aren’t we visiting Bilbao? Don’t worry, after the event (saturday afternoon) we will give you the opportunity to discover everything about Bilbao and the Basque traditions.
