Marketing Text Project will develop an innovative solution within VET system by introducing new institutional settings and practices ensuring implementation of gender equality and diversity planning at workplaces.
The project is designed to address the need for qualified gender equality and diversity (further in text – GED) consultants at workplaces. The demand of integrating this innovative qualification into VET system rises from necessity to implement EU directives No. 2002/73/EC and 2000/78/EC, which encourage employers in the Member States to promote equal treatment for everyone in the workplace in a planned and systematic way. Despite some fragmented good initiatives in implementing GED planning at workplaces, none of the partner countries has well-functioning framework of training facilities in their VET systems, ensuring preparation of in-house GED consultants at workplaces. Therefore, this project aims to develop an innovative solution in VET system by introducing new institutional settings and practices to ensure effective and systematic implementation of gender equality and diversity planning at workplaces.
The envisaged impact concerns introducing innovative training for GED consultant at workplaces into VET systems. This will ensure transfer from fragmental implementation of GED policies at workplaces towards effective promotion of equal treatment of all employees at the workplace in a planned and systematic way via prepared human resources.
