Police managers from law enforcement agencies across the OSCE area will meet with the aim to examine the issue of gender balance in police upper management positions.
Within the OSCE area there are various organizations and associations which deal with police gender issues. Gender experts have identified challenges in the areas of recruitment, work environment, promotions and administrative policies.
The OSCE strongly supports improving the gender balance of police in upper management positions. Inclusion of women in management positions contributes to the development and reinforcement of democratic policing.
The workshop is primarily intended for police managers (regardless of gender) who hold middle management or supervisory positions. The SPMU encourages the participation of human resource managers, administrative policy experts, and persons holding responsibility for gender issues.
