The economic and social crisis that Europe is facing has led to a sharp decline in economic activity and recession. The labour market is being severely hit and unemployment rates are increasing thus negatively affecting the EU’s potential growth.In this scenario, the aim is for Europe to become a smart, sustainable and inclusive economy. Inclusive means, among others, raising Europe’s employment rates and helping people with fewer opportunities of all ages manage change through investment in skills and training.
Unemployment is particularly high among women and young people and this situation is exacerbated among disabled women who face a double discrimination: as women and as disabled people. In addition, these women are more vulnerable because of issues related to health-work balance,limited availability for training and access to resources, accesibility barriers, mental or psychological problems among others.
The general objective of READY WOMEN project is to offer new opportunities and innovative instruments to adult women with disabilities for improving their qualifications and thus their levels of employability and integration into the labour market, mainly through training actions related to the New Yields of Employment (NYE) and emerging sectors.
The project will contribute to the Europe 2020 Strategy and targets regarding the role of education and training in social inclusion, empowering people and ensuring that citizens, in particular, adults disabled women with low levels of education, unemployed disabled women, and those who have left school early, can access lifelong learning and up-skilling throughout their lives and to improve their levels of employability and social skills.
