MASP final events

After two years of cooperation and input from the side of public authorities, SMEs, social economy, civil society organisations and researchers, MASP partners are glad to present final project outputs and discuss policy perspectives at national and European level in the framework of two complementary online events that can be followed both in Italian and in English:

On 25 March 2021 (10 am-1 pm) participants will have the occasion to learn more about the different (online) tools that were developed in the framework of the MASP initiative and tested by public authorities and enterprises in and around the city of Milan as well as in the Province of Trento: Among them a unique training programme for employees with care tasks as well as an online platform targeting specifically unemployed women. The presented Italian MASP experiences will be complemented and/or commented by presentations of work-life balance-related initiatives from Norway, Austria and France. Ilona Zelvyte and Valentina Remida, DG Employment, European Commission will share their view and knowledge on how to further promote and find support for initiatives around work-life balance and women employment at European level.

26 March 2021 (9.30 am-1.30 pm): The final European dissemination event of the MASP initiative will be the occasion to exchange with and build bridges to other European initiatives promoting work-life balance and equal opportunities (with topics such as gender-responsive public procurement, the role of labour inspectorates or mobilisation of men), but also to discuss EU policy perspectives with EU policy-makers such as MEP Frances Fitzgerald (rapporteur of the European Parliament on the gender perspective in the Covid-19 period and post-crisis period), Jiri Svarc, Head of Unit Social Investment Strategy at DG Employment (European Commission) or Marina Calderone, member of the European Economic and Social Committee.
