Enhancing Diversity and fighting against Discrimination

The 5th newsletter of the Di&Di project was written by the Swiss partner, ECAP, with contributions from all the other partners. It summarises the main topics discussed during the last European meeting, held in Zurich on October 2015. The main one was the project's perennisation, starting from the results of the experimentation processes in each country as well as at the European level. Thanks to an appropriate methodology developed by the German partner, Bildungsmarkt ev, the partners could start from an evaluation approach to define work trails for the future of Di&Di. During the European meeting in Zurich, a steering committee gathering Swiss stakeholders was organised by ECAP. The 6 partners of the project discussed the issues of discrimination and diversity in the labour market with experts of trade unions and of the federal government, which allowed to link the results of Di&Di's approach to the specificities of the Swiss context.

Five months after its last meeting in Berlin, partners involved in Project Di&Di met again on October 16th and 17th in Forli, Italy, hosted by IECOB. In the intervening months, partners completed preparatory work packages, such as the training and mentoring program, the evaluation strategy, and the definition of target groups. The most recent European meeting marked the launch of the experimental phase of the project.

The third newsletter reveals more about the specific achievements and progress made in the past few months.

DiDi European MeetingDiDi German meetingThe Di&Di Project „More Diversity & Less Discrimination on the Labour Market” is progressing. During the last six months, all project partners have been working on the specific tasks assigned to them (their so-called “work packages”) and met for their second European meeting in Berlin on 8th and 9th May 2014, hosted by the partner bildungsmarkt e.v., to deepen their exchange and discussion.

In this second newsletter, we would like to give you an insight into our European project work, the lessons learned and aims achieved during the last months.


The first Di&Di newletter informs about the general nature of the project “Di&Di”: More Diversity and Less Discrimination in the Labour Market. This project addresses discrimination in the labour market for reasons of origin and gender ‐ two of the six types of discrimination defined by the EU legislation in 2000. Di&Di focuses on two target groups considered vulnerable: qualified youths and low-qualified women with migratory backgrounds. The Di&Di project will design trainings for these target groups together with mentoring for people working with migrants (from association, companies, etc.).

The basis for the programme combines results of two former projects:

  1. Portfolio Migrapass: using tools and training for cultural mediators for Di&Di

  2. Diversité +: using strategy implemented by the project for mentoring.

The European team will develop training and mentoring sessions in their respective countries, taking into account the context of discrimination in the labour market experienced by qualified youths and low-qualified women with migratory backgrounds.

The consortium of the project is led by Enda Europe in coordination with Iriv (both French partners) with four other partners from four European countries: Italy, Switzerland, Germany and Bulgaria.

Di&Di is a Transfer of Innovation project, a Leonardo da Vinci Project under the Lifelong Learning (LLL) programme supported by the European Commission.
