The scatter-plot below depicts the distribution of women and men among the European Commission’s 30 106 staff in 2020 (data on this graph exclude the category ‘other’ on page 5). The proportion of women is plotted along the horizontal axis, with the proportion of men on the vertical. The size of the bubbles represents the size of each of the 46 Directorates-General and other departments, by number of staff.On average, there are 654 administrators, assistants and contractual agents per Directorate-General, 56 % of whom are women and 44 % men. Of the 46 departments, 18 employ more than 60 % women (lower-right box) and two employ more than 60 % men (upper-left box). These two groups include the two largest Directorates-General: Translation (DGT) with 2 117 staff, of whom 67 % are women, and the Joint Research Centre (JRC) with 2 687 staff, of whom 61 % are men.
