Business leaders entrepreneurs and high-ranking professionals got together to celebrate the ladies that make a difference in various sectors of the economy and contribute to the country's general development. The 2021 edition of Business Arena's Most Admired Business Women Awards Gala recognized women's success and achievements in the workplace, their creativity and leadership and their vital contribution to the success of business and banking activities throughout Romania.
In fact, improved gender equality in decision-making is the main driver of progress in the EU, according to the latest Gender Equality Index from the European Institute for Gender Equality (EIGE). However, the report shows that, with a score of 67.9 out of 100, the EU is at least 60 years away from reaching complete gender equality, if it continues at the current pace. Among the member states, Sweden, Denmark and France keep their top spots. The awards for most improved go to Italy, Luxembourg and Malta, with each gaining around 10 points since 2010. Greece, Hungary and Romania are lagging behind the rest.

“We have seen small, steady gains year on year but this time we have a reason for concern. The coronavirus pandemic poses a serious threat to gender equality progress, which we cannot afford. More than ever, policymakers will need to use the results of our Index to design inclusive solutions that promote gender equality in our society, both during and after the pandemic,” said Carlien Scheele, EIGE’s director.

In turn, Helena Dalli, European Commissioner for Equality, said: “Gender equality must be sought in all areas of life for all Europeans - regardless of their gender - to reach their full potential. The Gender Equality Index is a crucial tool in this quest as it tracks progress. I congratulate those countries that have improved their score over the past year. Nonetheless, there is still a long road ahead in many aspects, particularly in the digital world. As our present and future are increasingly digital, we need to ensure that women and girls occupy their fair share of this sector and are encouraged to contribute towards its growth. The EU Gender Equality Strategy adopted this year sets out key actions for the next five years, to step up the work towards equality and we need to see it through and fully implemented to ensure that women and men can be free, will thrive and lead.”
