  17. 17. A new collective awarenessA change of attitudes in both women and menBalanced access of women to managerial and decision-makingposts, including in the socio-economic field, would be a genuinequalitative leap forward towards achieving de facto equalitybetween women and men in society. Luisa Vinciguerra - MORE WOMEN IN SENIOR POSITIONS 20
  18. 18. Inner Wheel can do a GREAT DEAL in thiscontext.Inner Wheel has a ROLE.I’m convinced that the social gried Inner Wheelshould seriously TAKE ACTION and DEVOTEATTENTION to these issues, which concernwomen in their respective countries. THE PATH WILL STILL BE A LONG ONE Luisa Vinciguerra - MORE WOMEN IN SENIOR POSITIONS 22
  19. 19. The Inner Wheel Women must become more aware, and then, transmit their renewed AWARENESS AND KNOWLEDGE through Club or District initiatives, as a cultural service.Luisa Vinciguerra - MORE WOMEN IN SENIOR POSITIONS 23
  20. 20. INNER WHEEL WITH OTHER NGOs  The Inner Wheel must always be ACTIVE, as a Service Club, within the European Union, next to all the other NGOs (organisations and female associations) which represent the world of Women and which can bring AN EXTRA VALUE TO THE DEVELOPMENT OF PROGRAMMES TO WOMEN, in a broad and dedicated sense.  The INFORMATION CAMPAIGNS ANDINFORMATION CAMPAIGNS SENSITISATION ACTIONS are some of the activities which Inner Wheel, united with other organisations committed in the sector, should promote in order to achieve the Projects objectives. Luisa Vinciguerra - MORE WOMEN IN SENIOR POSITIONS 24
  21. 21. 25not only are they constantly committed to servicein Developing Countries…. But they can, also, getinvolved and make their mark in a concrete way inthe social processes of the community in whichthey operate. The work of Inner Wheel is in factalso a work involving relationships, to helpunderstand and promote spread and promotion ofEuropean citizenship. Luisa Vinciguerra - MORE WOMEN IN SENIOR POSITIONS
  22. 22. • What relations do women maintain with the EU and what are their expectations of the EU?EU • What role do they ascribe to the European Institutions, and what role would they like to see them play?EU • Why do women perceive the EU as distant?EU Luisa Vinciguerra - MORE WOMEN IN SENIOR POSITIONS 26
  23. 23. 27The link between women and the EU is weaker thanbetween men and the EU.Today, women do not sense what the role of the EU is,as well as its relevance to their specific concerns. Theyhave little interest in it and have less knowledge of itthan men. This would explain why women perceive theEU as distant. Towards the role of Inner Wheel, if we can we manageto break this vicious circle, women will betterunderstand the pertinence of the EU, have a greaterinterest and better knowledge of it, and feel closer to it.
