Education and career paths are often guided by gender-based stereotypes from the first stages. Professionals in transition phases along the education-training-labour market chain oftern are not sufficiently aware of the role they can play in reinforcing such discriminations and lack specific competences.
The main priority of the project is to address the stereotyping of educational and career choices and to promote gender equality in education, training, career guidance and at the workplace. GET UP has launched a capacity building process for the professionals who intervene in transition phases by developing and delivering a training on gender equality based on a common European Minimum Standard of Competences to be defined, and is developing innovative tools to raise awareness on the issue among youngsters and adults – such as a Serious game and short videos.
Join us during the Conference in Como to know more about the training opportunities (offline and online) and the awareness-raising tools developed!
The project is financed by the REC – Rights, Equality and Citizenship programme run by DG Just.
