Sanz, the vice president of the Consell, Susana Labrador, and Councillors Vanessa Parellada and Paula Ferrer, among other authorities.

The closing ceremony, held in the Sala de Cultura and presented by President Juan, consisted of a presentation from journalist Montserrat Boix on equality plans in the public media, and a space to share good practices in efforts by public administrations to close the wage gap.

President Juan highlighted "the great social advances women have made in gender equality in recent years with progressive policies, but there is still a long way to go". According to Juan, "we must not lose sight of helping women to develop their life project in equality and that is why it is very important to make this work visible".

This year's Aules Feministes were held under the title "Economics for Equality: The Feminist Agenda". Aules Feministes started in 2020 as a space for reflection on feminism and its transformative power.
