published 23 April 2014 updated 23 April 2014

400 participants convened in Dublin on 7 – 9 April 2014 for (e)quality education. Following the conference motto, from words to action, female leaders in education and teacher unions from around the world gathered to tackle some of the biggest challenges for gender equality in education.

The conference successfully highlighted the impact that quality education for girls and women not only makes on improving the lives of individual students, but on how it strengthens families, communities and society as a whole.

Manifold workshops provided opportunities to collaborate on practices that have improved equality for women and men in teacher unions, and to underline the importance of gender equality in education.

Treating participants to an intermezzo of folk music by Irish students in the decorative Dublin town hall on the second day, the conference culminated in high spirits with the participants jointly raising their voices in singing at the close of the conference.
