    • Innovative Approaches to Gender Equality • Challenges facing our region – regression in women’s participation in political life & in public administration • General agreement that the issue has to be tacked at the political, institutional, societal and cultural levels. • Concerns raised by women’s groups, bureaucrats, politicians and community organizations, NGOs for pro-active measures to have women fully participate in socio-economic and political life2011/11/28 Bratislava Regional Center 2
    • How to address the challenges • There are international best practices – Canadian approach – women’s equality in public administration – at the decision making level • Canada: gender parity in PA but NOT in political participation. 52% in PA senior positions and 24% in political participation. • How did Canada achieve parity in PA - took a long term view – took us 30 yrs - leadership came from the highest level – PM - incorporated gender equality in national policies, strategies, budgets and other decisions.2011/11/28 Bratislava Regional Center 3
    • Canadian experience • How did we do it? - integrated CD in policy making, strategic planning, budget decisions – established small units in key ministries – starting in the Centre – PMO, MoF/Planning & line ministries - budgeted activities – not budget neutral! - generated data, information, analysis & reports to decision makers & to the public – measured progress. - Involved the private sector, CSOs, NGOs in the discussion - Worked on developing pool of leaders – role2011/11/28 Bratislava Regional Center 4
    • Canadian experience…….. - Recognized & publicized the socio-economic negative impact of inequality – when majority of populations’ good talent is not used. - Recognized that men & women are the engines of growth and prosperity2011/11/28 Bratislava Regional Center 5
