The gender quotas prescribed by the required number of women in managerial positions in public administration and economy have proved to be the most effective measure in developed countries for achieving gender balance in economic, political and social spheres, and Serbia should follow this example at all levels.
This is just a part of the key messages from the round table “The Role of Women in the Economy and Society” organised by the Embassy of Israel and NALED in Sombor as part of marking the 69th anniversary of independence of that country and 25 years since the establishment of diplomatic relations. The host of the event, Mayor of Sombor and member of the Board of NALED Dušanka Golubović, pointed out that there is no quality society without the quality role of women and that it is necessary to adjust the role of women in contemporary conditions. She also assessed that it is necessary for women to ensure autonomy and to have clear goals that will be supported with support. Israel’s experience in empowering women to the round table was conveyed by Rina Bar-Tal, the emeritus president of the Israeli Women’s Network and Ambassador Alona Fisher Kamm.
