In the context of the International Women’s Rights Day, the STATEC is organising on the 1st of March a conference on the salaries of women and men. In the presence of the of the responsible minister, Taina Bofferding, speakers will explain the issues as well as the means made available to companies to ensure gender equality at work.

In addition, the STATEC will publish views on the employment and salaries of men and women in Luxembourg. The aim of the economic seminar will be to present the main results:

  • Only 38% of employees are women
  • Women are still concentrated in some sectors and almost absent in others
  • If women have made significant progress in management positions, very high salaries seem to remain with them inaccessible
  • Along with Romania, Luxembourg has the lowest pay gap of the European Union

The ABBL strongly supports this event and believes that diversity is no longer regarded as simply a human resources issue limited to fair hiring perspectives. It has become a strategic business issue as it can contribute to corporate strategy and effectiveness, and there is undoubtedly a positive relationship between financial performance and greater diversity in leadership.


This event will be in French, on the 1st of March, from 11:00 to 12:00. It will be held in the form of a webinar via the platform Skype for Business.

Please register before 23 February 2021 by sending an email to inscription@statec.etat.lu.

The link to connect to the meeting will be sent to you later.
