Meet the women who shape Brussels

Editorial Team recommended by Editorial Team NewsMavens, Europe

EU, politics, gender

Usually, when there is a conflict to resolve arbiters have one of two options -- penalize the offending party or compensate the victim. Parents face similar dilemmas when dealing with sibling rivalry, teachers with students, courts with lawsuits.

As we observe the lack of gender parity in EU institutions (2/3 of speakers at EU-related events in Brussels are men, 89% of EU’s presidents and PMs are men) we can conceive the same approach -- scold the organizations for dropping the ball, or strengthen the women who made it in Brussels against all odds.

Perhaps a combined, stereo approach would be best? If so, then the positive reinforcement camp has a clear leader this month. The European edition of Politico just released this year's ranking of “The women who shape Brussels”.

Politico's 'best of' features 19 women who “influence policy and drive debates” at the heart of the EU. The number one position was awarded collectively to “tech titans” -- the women whose impact on the tech industry was particularly relevant in the past 12 months.

Europe Women to watch

The Women who shape Brussels ranking includes:

  • commissioners,
  • lobbyists,
  • Brexit negotiation advisors,
  • EU ambassadors and spokespeople,
  • foundation directors,
  • editors,
  • representatives of NATO,
  • founders of the Brussels Binder – an organization dedicated to greater gender representation at Brussels events.
