The training will enable migrant and refugee women to re-skill or upskill in the digital sector.
A major part of the project is dedicated to preparing them for the labour market in the host country and raising awareness of women rights in the host society.
The training will be held in Amsterdam (Netherlands), Prague (Czech Republic), Berlin (Germany), Athens (Greece), Turin (Italy) and Sofia (Bulgaria).
Ten migrant women per country will benefit from training delivered by either the Cisco Academy or The Code to Change. The training is delivered as follows:
- in-person group training on social and labour market integration and women’s rights
- online and in-person training based on the Cisco Networking Academy curriculum or on the Bootcamps created by The Code to Change
The training aim to prepare migrant women for social inclusion in the host country and labour market.
Regarding social inclusion, group workshops will be offered to raise awareness of the human rights of women and in particular migrant women:
- access to education
- access to justice
- access to work
- protection from gender-based violence against women and other kinds of discrimination
