Rethinking the role of women in cultural and media professions: A European comparison

Panel discussion with Helmut Anheier (Hertie School), Eva Fehringer (Austrian Federal Ministry for Social Affairs, Council of Europe), Lisa Jordan (Porticus Foundation), Charles Landry (Comedia), Suzanne Pradel (BuchScout Agency), and Els van der Plas (Dutch National Opera & Ballet).

We would like to invite you to a panel discussion and audience debate on the current trends and policy developments to empower women in cultural and media professions in Europe.

Despite mainstreaming efforts by the European Union and the Council of Europe, gender inequality persists for women in all areas of the economy. In the culture and media sector, the pay and pension gaps are even worse than in other fields. There is also a significant under-representation of women among the leading positions, in boardrooms, and as recipients of awards. While there is widespread consensus that raising awareness does help to dismantle the glass ceiling, which concrete measures are most effective? What can we learn from our European neighbours?

The results of this discussion will contribute to a research project currently being conducted at the Hertie School's Centre for Cultural Policy.
