A conference on professional gender diversity in early childhood under the patronage of the Ministry of Childhood, Families and Women’s Rights, was organized under the heading “Gender diversity in early childhood” coordinated by AMEPE. On the program we can find conferences, round tables and workshops. At the center of the debates taken, different issues were discussed like men in early childhood professions, why are they so few, what hindrances their participation in these professions, how to progress for change, how do other European countries perform... This working day was aimed to promote gender diversity in early childhood professions. The focus was to sensitize all actors involved: students, future pros, trainers, recruiters and public policies managers.
