The French President wishes to make gender equality a global priority. For this reason, France, as part of its G7 Presidency, has become the first country to create an equality label for the organization of events.
The G7 ministerial meetings (as well as the G7 Summit in Biarritz) are the first international events to receive gender equality labels.
To obtain this label, which is awarded by the French standardization agency AFNOR, the organizers of the Biarritz Summit and ministerial meetings have set an example in the following ways:
- taking into account professional equality and parity policy;
- ensuring that the agenda for each event includes a question on promoting gender equality;
- opting for non-stereotyped communication tools;
- promoting innovative initiatives and efforts to adopt best practices.
The equality label, awarded by AFNOR, is a new way of raising awareness of this issue. Thanks to the French G7 Presidency, it will ensure that gender equality gains visibility at the international level.
