ABOUT THE PROJECT
Women economic empowerment is an essential asset to achieve gender equality. However, in most countries, worldwide men outnumber women in leadership positions in every sector globally, including business, non-profits, government, education, medicine, the military, and religion. This gender gap, often referred to with the metaphor “glass ceiling”, represents one of the most critical challenges to achieve gender equity and allow equitable working opportunities to all genders. Given the urgency of achieving gender equity, which encompasses promoting women leadership and including men in the process, the capacity-building project LEO – Leadership is for Everyone was created. The project aims to enhance women’s leadership, develop NFE resources for youth workers and young people, promote men’s involvement in women’s empowerment, and strengthen the synergies between youth work and the labour market. This aim will be achieved through a wide range of single-sex and mixed activities (job-shadowing, internship programme, workshops, e-course, and more) for young women and men.
GOALS OF THE TRAINING COURSE
A 6 days international training course (+2 travel days) will be organised to train youth workers (5 per partner country) on how to support young women who struggle to enter the labour market, and how to involve men in their leadership and economic empowerment process. The training targets youth workers from 4 partner countries: Albania, BosniaHercegovina, Italy and Lithuania. The training is entirely based on non-formal education approach which involves learners on a voluntary basis and is carefully planned to foster the participants’ personal, social and professional development.
