EI Gender Equality Action Plan (GEAP)


What is the GEAP?

The EI Gender Equality Action Plan is a framework which will enable EI and its affiliates to translate education unions’ policies, rhetoric and activities relating to gender equality into action. The 2011 EI Resolution on Gender Equality states that unions are responsible for ensuring the full participation of women in union structures and at all levels. The EI GEAP highlights three main priorities in the run up to 2015:

    1. Promoting gender equality within unions

    2. Securing girls’ access to and participation in quality public education

    3. Promoting and securing women’s economic empowerment
