In the framework of the Employers' Thematic Committees developed by BUSINESSMED within the EBSOMED project, the committee "Gender Mainstreaming and Women and Youth Empowerment" held a working session on 20 July 2020, in the premises of the organisation, in Tunis, with the presence of Mrs Leila Belkhiria Jaber, President of the Committee, Mrs Nedra Razgallah, the mandated expert, as well as the BUSINESSMED team.

The meeting resulted in reviewing the first deliverable of the instrument giving emphasis to the necessity to include some national and regional priorities by incorporating a gender perspective across different sectors in the target countries. 

The action plan has been defined as well as the main topics of the survey and the methodological approach; that includes the definition of different practical tools that can be used to help integrate a gender perspective into all stages of policymaking and strategic planning of the committee's work.  

The final report along with interventions from the committee members and the expert will be presented during a live webinar to be held in December 2020.
