In recent years, increased participation in the labour market and the increasingly active role in entrepreneurial activities by women constitute a significant development for most countries.
Opportunities for exploiting the unused potential and creating new jobs in the labour market can be realized by encouraging the involvement of women in social enterprises by using ICT tools (Information and Communication Technology). This is acknowledged by the Academic and Business world. Disadvantaged women need to recognize the power they have to activate their potential in the social and economic arena.
To be successful in such a programme and to overcome the barriers that disadvantage women face, one needs to review their working conditions, style of execution and implementation of business strategy and business development, future expectations and evaluation of their potential for exploiting organizational and environmental opportunities.
Therefore the target group for this project is, Local, Immigrant, Disadvantaged, and Unemployed Women.
As published on the Social Affairs and Inclusion Portal of the European Commission:
“Social Enterprises are an important driver for inclusive growth and play a key role in tackling current economic and environmental challenges, according to a report published by the European Commission. Yet, only seven countries (Bulgaria, France, Italy, Luxembourg, Slovenia, Sweden, and United Kingdom) have a policy framework in place to encourage and support the development of Social Enterprises.”
Social Enterprises represent one of the most innovative ways to develop an inclusive political environment, based on solidarity, and this is the main reason why this WISED Project wants to offer Local, Immigrant, Disadvantaged, and Unemployed Women the information and specific skills needed for easy access to Social Enterprises.
