GUIDE

GUIDE: Upgrading the skills of professionals for gender sensitive career guidance.

An important persistent problem in EU is the uneven concentration of women and men in different sectors of the labor market. Overall more women work within fields of education, health and social work (30% women - 8% men) while significantly more men are employed within fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics (7% women - 33% men).

GUIDE focuses on the issue of gender and career development and the continuing barriers to achieving equality of opportunity in this area. For this purpose, it is important Career Guidance Professionals (CGP) to adopt a gender sensitive approach and avoid using stereotypes when supporting individuals in making their career decisions.

We aim to help career counselors to move away from biases based on traditional roles which can limit choices to ensure that equal opportunities are offered to all genders without taping the human talent and resources. Let’s ensure all gender are enabled to choose among opportunities on the basis of interest and ability rather than gender.

The project is carried out in collaboration with partners from: Greece, Cyprus, Portugal, Slovenia, Germany, Netherlands, and Spain and supported by the Erasmus+ program.
