On 26 January 2018, the Advocate of the Principle of Equality in cooperation with the French Embassy organised a round table entitled Challenges and opportunities for women in business: the impact of gender on career, which was presented by: Tomislava Blatnik, representative of a French company Samsic in Slovenia, Živa Humer, researcher at the Peace Institute, Saša Mrak, Executive Director of the Managers’ Association of Slovenia, and Andreja Poje, Executive Secretary of the Association of Free Trade Unions of Slovenia. The round table was moderated by the Advocate of the Principle of Equality Miha Lobnik. In their contributions, female speakers also briefly mentioned challenges they were faced with as female representatives on their career paths. In addition, Živa Humer and Andreja Poje offered a broader insight into the problems originating from labour law dilemmas of the Slovenian legislation as well as low level of business ethics and culture in the workplace. A degree of discrimination based on a personal circumstance of gender is still more than present in Slovenia, especially in the workplace.
