Call for proposals to support transnational projects to promote good practices on gender roles and to overcome gender stereotypes in education, training and in the workplace
Description of call
"Call for proposals to support transnational projects to promote good practices on gender roles and to overcome gender stereotypes in education, training and in the workplace"

Rigid gender roles can hamper individual choices and restrict the potential of both, women and men, girls and boys. In this context, the transition from education to work is crucial as it impacts the whole career. Tackling occupational segregation requires attracting girls to male-dominated fields of study and vice versa. By promoting neutral gender roles in education, training, guidance on career choices and employment, projects are to positively impact on women's and men's access to education, to the labour market and to entrepreneurship.

This call for proposals aims to finance projects presenting innovative answers to educational and occupational labour-market segregation, promoting good practices on gender roles and aiming to overcome gender stereotypes in education, training and in the workplace. Priority will be given to projects focusing on young people (13-30 years old) and addressing the transition from school to work and occupational labour market-segregation young people are confronted with when entering the labour-market.

Successful projects will ensure appropriate measurement of their impact through sound methodology (by experimentation with control groups, e.g.). Applications must be transnational and include a description of how the scaling-up of the project could occur at European level (i.e. its European added-value). Projects are to promote good practices and intensify mutual learning among various national and international actors.
Good quality cooperation between beneficiaries – that could include e.g. social partners, public service providers, career guidance services and civil society organisations –will be instrumental in making innovative projects successful. Partnerships with European platforms and networks working in the fields of education, training, guidance, employment and gender equality will be highly valued.
