The project “YesWePlan!”, is co-funded by the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union and connects different European partner organisations with the aim of sharing experiences and best practice examples for closing the gender gap in the field of Architecture and Civil Engineering. This cooperation requires a profound understanding about the situation in each partner country in regard to gender equality, special challenges and potential promoters for improvements.
The project is approaching this deep understanding in two ways: A country situation analysis that is based on a commonly developed data collection form and the development of a Career Tracking System that is able to give insight into career decisions and motives of a representative number of professionals.
Based on these information tools and on a collection of gender equality best practise examples in the partner countries a compendium will be developed that will not only provide tools but also recommendations for measures to improve gender equality in Architecture and Civil Engineering to different relevant stakeholders.
On 31st of March, the project results will be presented at the YesWePlan! Multiplier Event in Vienna. Political stakeholders such as EP Vice-President and Chairwoman of the EP Equality Committee Evelyn Regner and the Austrian Minister of female affairs Susanne Raab will be present and an evening networking session will be taking place.
