The Coordination Unit for Gender Mainstreaming in the European Social Fund (ESF) - in short GeM Coordination Unit - was established in 2000. Its establishment and effect were to be seen in context with the so-called ESF Structural Fund period 2000-2006. The Federal Ministry of Economics and Labour established the Coordination Unit for Gender Mainstreaming in the European Social Fund (ESF), in order to support the implementation of Gender Mainstreaming in the ESF. The GeM Coordination unit has compiled the following report, in order to document experiences and selected results simultaneously with the phasing-out of the Structural Fund period, gained up to now during realisation of Gender Mainstreaming within the area of labour market and employment policy. For this purpose, an overview of the current experiences gained during implementation of Gender Mainstreaming in Austria was provided, in particular concerning those institutions relevant for the ESF.
