Brussels , 4th of December 2019:
On 4th of December 2019, The International European Movement and the European Women's Lobby hosted the fourth annual Women of Europe Awards at the Bellevue in Brussels.
„Today, we have had the honour of celebrating the achievements of some truly inspirational and visionary women at the Women of Europe Awards 2019. All the winners and nominees have had such far-reaching positive impacts both locally and globally. While it is important to acknowledge that our work to enhance the recognition of women in our societies is far from done, the contribution of the winners tonight demonstrate the power and influence that women can have in bringing about positive change,” said Eva Maydell MEP, President of the European Movement International and chair of the jury.
„The Women of Europe awards are a great opportunity to honour, thank and amplify the voices of fantastic women coming from all across Europe who are shaping our future. The Awards happen at a particularly important moment, with the new European institutions taking office, as they give visibility to women and girls’ diverse identities and experiences in Europe, which have to be acknowledged and addressed by EU policies,” said Gwendoline Lefevre, President of the European Women’s Lobby and member of the jury. The Women of Europe Awards 2019 are awarded in four categories, and the winners are:

At the end of the year, an international training on gender based harassment on the workplace was held in Innsbruck (Austria). It is part of the project "BE AWARE", which will create opportunities for sexual harassment in the workplace to be identified and sanctioned. And to help his victims. The project will also help employers who annually lose their employees who leave "for unexplained reasons". Very often, these invisible causes are related with harassment between colleagues or other attacks, in most cases gender based, which most often cause victims to leave the toxic work environment. And very often, they also need extra help to overcome the mental and emotional traumas resulting from prolonged harassment on the workplace.
Surveys show that some of the employers in Bulgaria do not have any internal rules regarding harassment, insulting or sexual abuse between colleagues. This leads to the concealment and neglecting of such cases. The BE AWARE project will create tools to assist victims of sexual harassment on the workplace and encourage employers to create a more supportive and secure environment for their employees. Something that will increase their ability to work.
