We aim to increase women’s participation in the labour market by improving educators and trainers’ entrepreneurial training skills and competencies.

What is the WOMIN project?
The WOMIN Project is an exciting new initiative that was launched in February 2021.
The Project is co-funded by Erasmus+ KA2 Strategic Partnerships in the field of adult education. The aim of the Project is to increase women’s participation in the labour market by improving educators and trainers’ entrepreneurial training skills and competencies.
We are very pleased to say that WSX Enterprise is one of six Partners participating in the Project and will be working alongside colleagues from the following countries: The Netherland – Make a Dream Publishing Ltd and PROWORK, Lithuania – ZISPB, Turkey – BOSEV, Romania – BUCOVINA.
The Project proposes to develop two main outputs which are: IO1 – WOMIN Entrepreneurship Training Programme For Educators & Trainers and IO2 – Digital Toolkit and Webinars.
Within the first output each Partner, depending on a country, will be in charge of different subject areas e.g. upskilling trainers to improve entrepreneurial skills or improving competencies amongst women minority groups such as migrants and refugees.
WSX together with Make a Dream Publishing Ltd, PROWORK and ZISPB will design and deliver training to their own staff, trainers and associate Partners who will then deliver workshops and coaching to disadvantaged women furthest from the labour market.
The second output of the Project will help to put together a digital toolkit and webinar materials that would be available to both trainers and women who need support in their journey towards employment or entrepreneurship.
The EU Commission website on pages dedicated to “Women’s situation in the labour market” states that women work more part-time, are paid less and often still carry out the bulk of private domestic and care responsibilities.
Therefore entrepreneurship initiatives amongst women play an essential part in creating new job opportunities and in improving the local economy.
We hope that the WOMIN Project, which will end in October 2022, will contribute towards this development allowing more women to be active in the field of entrepreneurship and self-employment.
- 72% female population and 84% male population employed
- 9% wage gap
- 1 in 3 start – ups are initiated by women
Women's situation in the labour market
Even if employment rates for women have risen, they are still lagging behind those of men.
Women work more part-time, are paid less, and often still carry out the bulk of private domestic and care responsibilities.
WOMIN Entrepreneurship: Self employment is it for me
This entrepreneurship workshop asks and answers a lot of questions so that WSX’s beneficiaries make an informed choice when it comes to creating their own enterprise.
