Peer-Learning Seminar: Gender & Inclusiveness in Active Labour Market Policies
The European Training Foundation (ETF) is organising a seminar on active labour market policy approaches focused on gender equality and inclusiveness in the labour market, that will take place in Barcelona, on 15 and 16 November 2023. Agenda can be consulted below.
In 2022, ETF launched a multiannual initiative with the aim of (i) capturing developments in areas of active labour market policies (ALMPs) and transition to work, in particular skills implications, and (ii) enhancing knowledge sharing on innovative policy solutions, particularly in employability and skills sets in a lifelong learning approach. The work includes reviews of activation, reskilling and upskilling policies and programmes; fostering policy learning and exchange among ETF partner countries and EU Member States, as well as regular collection and expansion of datasets on ALMPs and other related aspects.
The objective of the seminar is to stimulate common reflection and discussion on how active labour market policies and training systems can accompany individuals and companies cope with the challenges based on gender inequalities and specific vulnerabilities. By bringing together partners from different institutional settings and regions, the seminar aims also to co-create a wide knowledge-base of innovative practices and successful enabling factors.

The event is organised in cooperation with the Union for the Mediterranean (UfM) Secretariat, and with support from the Directorate General for European Neighbourhood and Enlargement Negotiations (DG NEAR) of the European Commission.
