Gender Equality and Entrepreneurship 4 All
Dates: 17.10 - 25.10.2022
Place: Bansko, Bulgaria
Venue: 4 star hotel - Royal Bansko aparthotel
Description:The project intends to raise awareness regarding equal opportunities and will
promote entrepreneurship education as a solution to the gender gap in the employment rate. In order to attain the EU objectives to reach equality in entrepreneurship, the number of female entrepreneurs needs to rise. Indeed, women make up 52% of the European population – but just 34.4% of self-employed workers are women and 14% of start-ups are headed by female entrepreneurs. Young women should start considering entrepreneurship as an option and also benefit by the growing attention that is given by the EU on this matter. The development of entrepreneurial mindsets is becoming policy-embedded across Europe and so the project wants to provide participants with the necessary competences to overcome the gender gap in entrepreneurship. The project aims to:
Raise awareness regarding equal opportunities in entrepreneurship regardless of gender;
motto tools to examine gender issues and offer guidance;
Create a new approach to promoting entrepreneurship education as a solution to the gender gap;
Provide critical knowledge to youth workers to become coaches for women entrepreneurship.
