Promoting the prevention and elimination of workplace mobbing and harrasment.
The workplace has changed significantly in recent times and keeps evolving in various ways, becoming more inclusive and flexible. However, women workers still face discrimination and harassment on many levels which compromises not only their performance but overall safety. PROTECT is an innovative project that aims to collaborate with employees and employers equally and generate discussions, new research and methodologies in order to promote a more inclusive, attractive and ultimately equal labor market across Europe for women.
This will lead to:
During its 24-month lifetime, PROTECT will directly and indirectly positively impact VET education providers, employers and women workers
Developing comprehensive codes of conduct in the workplace to prevent mobbing and harassment
Educating employers/ managers and companies on how to adopt and implement anti mobbing and anti-harassment policies
Raising the awareness of female workers about their rights and support options including reporting, in case they face discimination or harassment
Training VET professionals on preventing and managing work-related violence
