ABOUT THE PROJECT
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 THE JOB SHADOWING
Job shadowing is a useful way to learn about particular practices and the work of other NGOs. Job shadowing involves spending time following a professional in their field of work. Through various activities, participants will gain a deeper understanding of the NGO sector. Participants will get to spend their time in the office connecting and learning from BRAVO members.

Sarajevo is the political, financial, social, and cultural center of Bosnia and Herzegovina and a prominent center of culture in the Balkans. Sarajevo became known for its large marketplace and numerous mosques, which by the middle of the 16th century numbered over a hundred. Sarajevo is one of those rare cities where, during a ten-minute walk, you can see places of worship for the world’s most important monotheistic religions: Orthodox and Catholic churches, synagogues and mosques. Despite its painful past, Sarajevo has a lot to offer to visitors. The city has a unique blend of Eastern and Western cultures, reflected in its architecture, food, and traditions.
