The Mediterranean Institute of Gender Studies (MIGS)  is now a partner in the project entitled Free to Choose.  Our core objective is to raise awareness around gender diversity, enhancing and promoting a change in culture and the behaviour of youngsters when choosing career paths. We are looking to inform youngsters in transitional phases, as well as key adults around the types, roots and effects of gender stereotypes and segregation in the labour market. Other objectives are to involve young people and key adults in the use of an innovative tool, in order to develop a diverse vision of professions, skills and opportunities in the labour market from a gender perspective. This will require recognising, breaking down and overcoming stereotypes, which affect both young people and adults.

The  Mediterranean Institute of Gender Studies (MIGS) is coordinating the project entitled: “GENDER-ED: Combatting gender stereotypes in education and career guidance“. The main aim of the project is to address the stereotyping of educational and career choices and to promote gender equality in education, training and career guidance. This will be achieved by attracting  women into male-dominated sectors or occupations, and conversely to attract men into female-dominated sectors or occupations by challenging stereotypical assumptions about the roles of women and men in the labour market, including in leadership positions, and to change behaviours and practices that hamper equality.
