The European Institute for Gender Equality aims to promote gender equality, to fight discrimination based on sex and to raise awareness of EU citizens of gender issues. With the "Women Inspiring Europe" Calendar, EIGE aims to give visibility and pay homage to some of Europe's most remarkable women, through highlighting their achievements and success stories. Please see the "Women Inspiring Europe" Calendar 2011 here: http://eige.europa.eu/women-inspiring-europe-2011-calendar.
Nominations for the "Women Inspiring Europe" Calendar 2012 are taking place until 10th of June. You can nominate an inspiring woman by filling in this on-line application form on EIGE's websitehttp://www.eige.europa.eu/women-inspiring-europe.
The nomination should be written in English, it should include a short biography, contact details and, if possible, a high resolution photo. The short biography is expected to answer the following questions:
1. How has she managed to break gender stereotypes (i.e. challenging traditional gender roles, producing innovative ideas);
2. How has she achieved visibility and recognition by way of her actions (locally, nationally or internationally);
3. How has she contributed to more equality between women and men.
The application can be submitted by a person or an organisation. If the application is submitted by the nominee herself, a supporting reference from an organisation should be added.
All received nominations will become part of the Institute's "Women Inspiring Europe" resource-pool, which contains information about women from all over Europe, who can act as role-models and as a source of inspiration for others. The resource pool is used by EIGE and its stakeholders and partners in search of realistic evidence of success in the form of testimonials, expert or speaker interventions. Over time as the activity gains momentum, the "Women of Europe" resource pool will become an integral part of the Institute's Resource and Documentation Centre pooling the experience and bringing recognition to the achievements of European women. Before publishing any information, the Institute will contact the nominee to agree on any information to be made public.
Let's work together to find Women Inspiring Europe!
