GRASE. Gender and Race Stereotypes Eradication in labour market access
GRASE - Gender and Race Stereotypes Eradication in labour market access is a two-year project funded by the EU under the European REC - Rights, Equality and Citizenship program which contributes to the development of an area where equality of people, as enshrined in the Treaty, the Charter and international conventions on human rights, are promoted, protected and effectively implemented.
GRASE's approach aims to activate synergistic collaborations to address these challenges in an intersectional perspective, combining the different areas of expertise of its partners, leveraging the added value that each of them can provide through their respective skills and know-how, through the activation of the Community of Practice as a fundamental part of its methodology.
The consortium is made up of entities that have developed significant experience in the three areas of the project:
- the integration of migrants;
- gender equality;
- the fair offer of guidance services to the labour market and counselling for the general population and for socially disadvantaged groups.
GRASE aims to reduce barriers in the system of counselling and career guidance services to facilitate the access of women with a migratory background to the labour market and to positions and sectors appropriate to their skills.
FGB together with the lead partner will ensure the scientific quality and coherence of the project by providing the overall scientific supervision of the progress of the project phases and producing the scientific results based on the research. FGB skills on gender equality strategies will be constantly integrated throughout the project to develop truly intersectional strategies for the removal of gender and race stereotypes.
