Happy International Women's Day!

On International Women's Day, we celebrate the remarkable contributions and successes of women worldwide. As an EU Agency specialising in Justice and Home Affairs, we witness first-hand the vital role women play in safeguarding Europe, ensuring justice, and upholding human rights. Yet despite their indispensable contributions, gender inequalities persist, underscoring the need to recognise their value and provide unwavering support for a safer and more equal Europe.

Within the realm of IT in Justice and Home Affairs, women offer unique perspective and expertise, vital in addressing modern challenges. From cybersecurity to data protection, their insights are critical for fortifying Europe's digital infrastructure and combating cyber threats. By valuing and empowering women, we bolster our ability to protect citizens' rights, strengthen security measures, and advance equality.

To achieve a safer and more equal Europe, we must prioritise the promotion and inclusion of women in all areas. This means providing career development opportunities, mentoring programmes and ensuring equal representation in decision-making positions. By promoting diversity and supporting women's aspirations, we can create a more inclusive and resilient society. 

On this day, we send our warmest greetings to all women. You are invaluable in building a better future for Europe. We pledge to continue our commitment to promoting equal opportunities within our Agency, but also with our partners & stakeholders, to ensure that everyone has an equal chance to thrive and contribute to building a safer and more equal Europe.  

Happy International Women's Day!
