Women’s economic empowerment is an essential asset to achieving 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 by the metaphor “glass ceiling” represents one of the most critical challenges to achieving gender equity and allowing equitable working opportunities to all genders. Given the urgency of achieving gender equity, which encompasses promoting women’s 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 labor market.
WHAT IS A JOB SHADOWING
Job shadowing is a useful way to learn about particular practices and work of other NGOs, in this specific case High on Life Italy. Job shadowing involves spending time following a professional as they work. By observing the professional you can get a better understanding of Non-formal learning methods. You will observe and follow an employee and observe them partaking in their day-to-day work. They might ask you to help with certain tasks or to prepare some workshops. In the same period of the Job Shadowing, Erasmus+ Youth Exchange will be hosted and it will gather 36 participants from 6 different countries, so this will present a great opportunity to involve in the activities of the Youth Exchange and be part of the behind-the-scenes of such project.
