The female unemployment rate is 50% greater than the male one. Unemployed women face a lack of financial and personal independence, poor integration, and under-representation in local and national communities.
In Greece, gender inequalities in digital education start appearing even in lower secondary education, while in upper secondary education, 85% of female students never or almost never engage in coding/programming.
The most vulnerable groups (e.g., youth with disabilities, and female refugees) face significantly higher unemployment rates and can be almost entirely excluded from employment.
We have designed a project to empower vulnerable women and youth with disabilities and strengthen their career paths in the world of work, focusing on the digital world. The project targets the inclusion of women in professional sectors that lacks equal representation.
The project offers the following services:
- Integration support courses; soft skills, empowerment, and career orientation for work-readiness
- Tailor-made, hard-skill vocational courses
- Employability services
