>> 23/01/04- 14.00/17.00 - ATEL Antwerp
In our society work occupies a dominant position. The tenser eocnomic and social context and majour tehcnological developments force in-depth reorganisations of work and labour.
Everyone has to find his/her place, and have the best possible working environment.
Everybody wants to work in the “ best work place ”.
Does “ Best work place ” mean the same thing for women as it does for men ? Is a “ Best work place ” the best for everyone whatever they have to do ?
These are the questions that the ADA network wants those taking part in the roundtable to consider in order to produce together proposals for criteria, actions and thoughts and define the concepts of the “ Best work place for women ”
As well as the action involved in this meeting, ADA network, faithful to its objective of exchanges of good practices, will publish the results of this round table on its website site ( www.ada-online.be ) and will circulate them to those responsaible for implementing these changes.
