Two (first) big grants won by the BB!

We are happy to announce that we have won two major grants this year from the Open Society Initiative for Europe, within the Open Society Foundations, and the European Commission’s Rights, Equality and Citizenship (REC) programme, DG JUST! Our team has worked hard to put these applications together and was rewarded just in time to tuck the fruit of these efforts under the Christmas tree!

The two grants will help us focus on capacity- and community-building, knowledge transfer to like-minded organisations and aspiring databases, and will contribute to the overall improvement of our database and website. In this framework, we are also excited to kick-start the “Brussels Binder Beyond”, a project that will take the idea of the Binder beyond borders, and support the development of existing initiatives into fully-fledged databases. All this, while raising awareness of the need for gender equal representation all around Europe.

Help Us Find a Venue for the Launch of the Binder

We are looking for a venue for the launch event in early November – reach out if you or someone you know want to get involved! The event will gather around 400 participants from the Brussels policy community and crown our fundraising campaign.
