Do Men Want Equality in the Workplace
This research explores the level of personal belief of men in increased gender equality, its benefits and associated issues and concerns. It also identifies what men believe companies need to do in order to bring about more equality. 2,660 men took the time to contribute to the survey. The results give us some hope, but not enough!Over three quarters of the men who responded believe that they will benefit personally from more gender equality in the workplace. Yet only one in five is actively engaged in making this happen.
Gender Balance Power Map
The goal of this project funded by the PROGRESS Programme of the European Union is to contribute to the enhancement of women participation to economic decision making positions at the European level on the basis of a co-inspiration between social and classic enterprises. Concrete outputs of the project (2015-2016) are : 21 events, 6 national studies, 1 European Comparative study and 1 European framework.

Gender and Career transitions
This educational package (coming soon: 2nd half of 2015) offers a comprehensive view on the gender career gap and gives concrete tips on bridging this gap. We focus on the most important transitional phases in a career (entry, promotion, exit) and look at the specific obstacles Western women face in each of these transitions. “Gender and Career transitions” was made possible through ESF financing and was created by Vlerick Management School, Ghent University and JUMP.
Gender Equality Toolbox
In 2014, we selected and published more than 100 corporate best practices in gender equality at the European level for the social partners. This Gender Equality Toolbox financed by the European Commission is a one-stop online facility promoting a selection of a wide range of practices initiated at workplace level or by national social partners focused on the following priorities: addressing gender roles, promoting women in decision-making, supporting work-life balance and tackling the gender pay gap.
Corporate gender equality best practices in Belgium
In 2014, we selected and published more than 60 corporate best practices in gender equality for the Institute for the Equality of Women and Men. The aim of the database is to propose and promote the most diverse possible range of initiatives, solutions and programs relating to equal opportunity policies to constitute a source of inspiration for other organisations. This project has been made in partnership with AXIOM CP.
Pioneering dads reverse traditional roles
In November 2013, JUMP, in partnership with Bain & Company, led a unique study concerning the shift in traditional gender roles at home and in the workplace, as well as men’s greater involvement in the family sphere. We interviewed 150 Belgians couples with kids in which the man takes up most of the responsibility for housework and child care for several years.
Women leaders speak out!
This survey carried in March 2012 analyses the responses of over 400 women in decision-making roles across a variety of sectors in Europe. It was produced in collaboration with the UK-based organisation eve-olution and Brussels-based JUMP. The survey results were compared and contrasted to the previous survey that was conducted in 2005 in the UK only and based on the original survey from 2003.
Women in Science and Technology
Women, who represent 60% of university graduates, are a reservoir of talent for science, technology and innovation. However, only 33% of them choose science or technology at higher education and very few make a career in this field. The majority of women in science are in the fields of medicine, biology or mathematics (to become teachers) and they often completely drop subjects such as computer science or civil and industrial engineering. This study was conducted by JUMP in March 2011.
Female entrepreneurship in Belgium
The Institute for the Equality of Women and Men commissioned JUMP to carry out a survey on the state of female entrepreneurship in Belgium in order to understand better the needs of companies. After reviewing all other studies on the subject, JUMP conducted a survey among more than 80 000 professional women in its database. The results were discussed at a round-table discussion comprising specialists and entrepreneurs (14 June 2010) before a list of recommendations and actions were drawn up.
After School Working Parent Time
In 2009, EDUCADOMO and JUMP joined forces to carry out this study with the support of Belgium’s Secretary of State for Families. The survey had two goals: to inform the public of the actual situation within families and also to spur decision makers, particularly those in the private sector and socio-political actors, to find solutions. And perhaps it even helped to change attitudes as well.
