WoMen – equality for women and men on the ICT labor market

The main objective of the development partnership is to encourage men and women in a more balanced gender distribution of the ICT labor market in the Tyrol. This will happen through awareness-raising activities, by identifying strategies and the development of specific instruments.

Project aims

  • Creation of social and political awareness by sensitizing public relations
  • Creation of an individual consciousness – by means of individual career planning for women
  • Sensitization and planning of appropriate strategies in companies
  • Counseling and guidance services (skills analysis, career planning, Resource pool, child care policies, models of parental support)
  • Training of highly qualified ICT professionals
  • Formation of networks of all relevant actors engaged in the support of equal opportunity on the labour market.

At the beginning of the project Hafelekar created a large-scale baseline study, using the method GABEK, which forms the basis for further activities. Hafelekar was further responsible for public relations and dissemination of the products.
