Croatian Ombudsperson for Gender Equality launches new video on equal opportunity access to economic decision-making

June 25th 2014

The Croatian Ombudsperson for Gender Equality launches a new video on equal access of women and men to economic decision-making in the framework of the EU-funded project "Dismantling the Glass Labyrinth – Equal opportunity Access to Economic Decision-making in Croatia”.

In Croatia, only 17.32% of board members of companies are women. The Croatian Ombudsperson for Gender Equality launched the project “Dismantling the Glass Labyrinth – Equal opportunity Access to Economic Decision-making in Croatia” to address this huge inequality and to encourage employers and policy-makers to promote economic participation of women.

The project is conducted with the support of the European Commission and in cooperation with the Ministry of Labor and Pension System, the Croatian Employers’ Association, the Institute for Labor Market Development and DIM — the Association for Civic Education and Social Development.

As part of the project, four empirical studies were conducted to assess under-representation of women in economic decision making in Croatia. The first two surveys have shown better representation of women in boards of limited liability companies (31.87%) and in supervisory boards (24.6%). However, they also clearly point out the existence of the strong gender-based segregation in economic decision-making.
