Video message from the Commissioner for Equality Helena Dalli

Next the participants viewed a video message from the Commissioner for Equality Helena Dalli. Commissioner Dalli underlined that equality is a key priority for the Commission, referring to the establishment of a task force within the Commission to mainstream equality in EU policies and to coordinate major initiatives and ensure EU policy coherence. She stated that, despite legislative and policy efforts in the past, people continue to suffer from discrimination and exclusion in our European societies, noting that COVID-19 has hit marginalised groups harder than mainstream groups, that black people face many types of discrimination, including in the field of employment, that Roma are still suffering from segregation and that women earn less for the same work than male colleagues.
