GET UP project – a step closer to promoting gender equality in education and at work place
On November the 8th and 9th, ALDA and UIL hosted the third coordination meeting of Project Get Up in Brussels. During the event, the partners discussed the latest advances on the project and the steps to be developed further with the support and guidance of a gender expert as an external observer.
The two-day meeting offered the partners the opportunity to share the last updates on the Gender Equality training, the European Minimum Standard of Competences and the Transnational training session. It also allowed the attendees to address the preparation and development of the Awareness Raising Campaign. All of these workstreams are at the core of the Get Up project, which seeks to tackle the stereotypes in educational and career choicesan d to promote gender equality in education, training, career guidance and at the workplace.
The meeting highlighted the following results:
- The partners shared the feedback gathered from their stakeholders regarding the European Minimum Standard of Competences framework, which allowed the further development of the document towards a final paper. The stakeholders contributed by presenting ways in which the EMSC could be disseminated or re-structured to be more effective.
- Based on the previous research about how to enable gender equality at the workplace and education, and with the support of the external expert, the partners agreed on the focus and structure of the training models, including a new agenda for the learning outcomes of each activity.
- The partners brainstormed and agreed on the content of the Awareness Raising Campaign activities to be developed: 3 video spots, 1 Serious Game and a photo contest.
The project launched a capacity building process for the professionals who intervene in transition phases along the education-training-labour market chain by developing and delivering a training on gender equality based on a common European Minimum Standard of Competences.
The third international meeting in Brussels indicates once again the strong commitment of the partners to fight the stereotyping of educational and career choices.
