Worklife balance and equal opportunity rights are the most important messages of the inclusion project for the society in order to emphasize the importance of the status and role of women in family and also at workplace after maternity leave.
With WOWIT project we plan to enrich our experience and expand the target group with young mother coming back to work market after maternity leave. We see motivation in experience with the target group of excellent international partners with relevant background and experience.
Each partner brings its specific know-how and best practices rising from its specific environment:
Czech Republic is dealing with support of women in industrial regions of Eastern Czechia. Slovenia acts as a representative of countries with one of the lowest gender pay gap rates in the whole EU. All Partners have similar goals toward workmarket inclusion for women coming back to the work market and try to combat unemployment by social inc, which are EU level priorities
We believe in synergy and in the variability of knowledge we can aim for by this partnerships. Partners come from the same sector (NGO) but have long -term experience both on the work market and also on working with social issues.
