On the 11th and 12th April 2019, CEIPES team flew to Valencia in Spain to participate to the IV Transnational Project Meeting of the “BIG CEFA – Breaking the Glass Ceiling for Women Administrators” project.

The project, financed by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union, Strategic Partnership in the field of Adult Education, aims at decreasing gender discrimination in public and private working places in administration and education field, in order to overcome stereotypes and prejudices about female administrators and to make them achieve the same career opportunities of men. Main aim of the project is to break the “glass ceiling” that impedes women to fulfill their professional path.

The first part of the meeting was dedicated to the general evaluation of the past four months of project activities, to the evaluation of the tasks distributed during the kick-off meeting of the project and to the dissemination activities carried out, with state of the art and future plans.

Partners also made a presentation about the training programme they will implement in their local context during the next months. The training programme is addressed to all women working in the administrative and education sector. The programme will be focused on the Glass Ceiling condition, the administrative training and coping skills. After the training participants will have the opportunity to participate to the mentorship training programme that will be addressed at least to the 20% of women that will take part to the training.

The training and the mentorship programme will be evaluated by the project participants through the compilation of an ad hoc training and mentorship evaluation, that will be useful to evaluate and in case to amend, improve and enrich the training.

The next transnational project meeting will take place in Braga, Portugal next 17th and 18th July.
