Les Expertes has launched an online platform that is a free international directory of women experts on gender issues and gender equality. The aim of this website is to make women and their expertise visible in the media and the public space.
Registration is free of charge for both experts and journalists. The process is simple, experts just have to fill in this form.
This non-commercial website is a new portal of the global project Les Expertes, supported by the Egaé group. The Expertes Genre platform is part of the Generation Equality Forum, a global gathering for gender equality organised by UN Women and co-chaired by Mexico and France.
The Gender Experts platform already lists the profiles of over 1,200 female experts. They are researchers, association leaders or professionals who integrate a gender approach into their activity. The aim is to reaffirm that gender issues and gender equality are scientific and technical expertise in their own right.
This platform is part of the Axis 1 "Strengthening the capacities of equality actors" of the Priority Solidarity Fund "Women for the future in the Mediterranean" funded by the French Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs and led by the European Institute of the Mediterranean, in the framework of the project “Developing Women's Empowerment” labelled by the Union for the Mediterranean.
