Introduction

Publication of DWP research report 667: European Social Fund Evaluation of Gender Equality and Equal Opportunities.

Main Digest

A report was published today by the Department for Work and Pensions covering the European Social Fund (ESF) Evaluation of Gender Equality and Equal Opportunities.

The ESF Gender Equality and Equal Opportunities Mainstreaming Plan for England and Gibraltar 2007- 2013 outlined the vision for mainstreaming Gender Equality (GE) and Equal Opportunities (EO) across all levels of the ESF program.
