Equality has not yet been achieved anywhere in the world...

When you look through the World Economic Forum’s latest Global Gender Gap Report, the facts say it all. The issues that are driving the work of the EAF Berlin – especially how to empower women in leadership positions in politics, business and academia – are a focus of many women’s and human rights organizations as well as of governments across the globe. During the current legislative period, for example, the German Foreign Office has also committed itself to a foreign policy more focused on the needs of women. That is why the EAF Berlin also works on the international stage. Based on our many years of experience in Germany, we devise strategies in close cooperation with local women’s organizations, build up networks and pass on our know-how and expertise.
