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.

Partners: Cyprus Family Planning Association (CDPA) in Cyprus, the Women’s Issues Information Centre (WIIC) in Lithuania, the Association for Gender Equality and Liberty (ALEG) in Romania, and the Centro documentazione donna (CDD) in Italy.
