Welcome


Dear Visitor,

 

Welcome to the Virtual Platform of the Albanian Women in Decision Making!

 

In Albania, women constitute half the population, but their role in the country’s decision making structures remains insignificant. Due to cultural, political, and social issues, as well as the specific structural organization of Albania’s political parties, women are under-represented in politics and in decision-making processes. Gender imbalance is evident in the management structure in both the public and private sectors, and improving the existing equity gap in decision-making structures remains a challenge.

 

Through this portal and the initiative we have undertaken, we aim to make a concrete contribution to strengthening and increasing the participation of women in all social processes and structures of Albania by providing them with opportunities for better information and higher qualitative participation in decision-making processes, as well as supporting gender equality in decision-making, politics, and in the key areas of the development of women in Albania.

 

The website will include basic information and statistics about Albanian women in political decision making. It will be our joint contribution in providing information, statistics, publications, issues, etc., that will make this portal a meeting point for all citizens, private and public organizations involved in gender equality issues, and any interested group to be directly in touch with Albanian women. It will serve as a good means of communication for the Albanian women themselves, inside and outside the country.

 

Thank you for your support and we welcome any information, suggestions, or ideas that can help us in our work.

Best regards,
