Italian COP

The Italian Community of Practice is composed by professional working in public and private entities in Lombardy dealing with career counselling services and/or policies directed to improve the employability of migrants and/or women. COP participants meet at regular intervals to discuss problems, solutions, worst and best practices aimed at identifying and eradicate race and gender stereotypes in order to deliver fair job market guidance for disadvantaged groups. Their different backgrounds offer a plurality of viewpoints that enriches our understanding of the problems faced by migrant women in the job market.

International COP

The partners of the project form an international-level COP to regularly exchange about the outcomes of the meetings of the three country-level COPs and to assess the knowledge produced by each COP. The international COP finalizes the three maps of critical and good practices elaborated by each national COP and the members activate a process of mutual learning to coordinate the work of three national-level COPs. The exchange among the members continues throughout the duration of the entire project concerning the definition of the Toolkits and the testing of the Training Toolkit.

 

Study Visit

The Grase partners have met through study visits to exchange working practices of career counselling professionals in Italy, Spain and Portugal. The aim of the study visits is to reflect about effective strategies to avoid the reproduction of race and gender stereotypes and to support migrant women’s labor market access.
