Reconciliation of Professional and Family Life in Collective Agreements: Role of Social Partners in the Promotion of Gender Equality (GEQUAL)

The project addresses the challenge of how social partners can promote gender equality, especially by introducing this issue into collective agreements. The employment status and rights, including measures for better reconciliation of professional and family life, determines to a great extent the position of women and men in all other areas of life. The main objectives of the project are:

  • to raise knowledge and awareness of social partners about the importance of work-life balance measures, which support gender equality and can raise company performance as well as possibilities to regulate them in collective agreements;
  • to introduce new, innovative reconciliation measures in collective agreements, which address current challenges (active fatherhood, ageing of population, more women on leading positions in economy etc.).

The project strengthens the contacts between the Norwegian and the Slovenian social partners and researchers and promotes the transfer of Norwegian experiences and good practice as regards gender equality in collective bargaining.
