Background: The "Women of Minorities" project

The "Women of Minorities" project is an initiative of the FUEN and aims to strengthen the representation and rights of women in minority communities across Europe.

A survey among FUEN member organisations revealed that although women are represented in the organisations, leadership positions are predominantly held by men. While many organisations are aware of the principles of gender equality, there is often a lack of official guidelines and training. Obstacles such as lack of promotion, lack of awareness and stereotypes within the organisations hinder equality.

In 2023, FUEN organised an online meeting and an event in Vienna (Austria) on this topic, which attracted wide interest.
