1. ONLINE BARCAMP ON GENDER & SOCIAL INCLUSION (GESI)
How does the business sector implement GESI in dual VET
Wednesday, 15th March 2023, 12:00 – 2:00pm CET
Let’s hear from businesses how and why GESI is moving up on their priority list and let´s continue the exchange on promising approaches and experiences in the field of GESI. The upcoming BarCamp includes a keynote and open exchange sessions on topics proposed by the participants:
- Keynote: Diane Le Goff, Global Manager of the Youth Education & Entrepreneurship CSR programs for Schneider Electric, based in Vietnam. She will be focusing her input on strengthening VET, supporting the integration of women in the energy-sector and encouraging innovation.
- Exchange Sessions: So far, the GIZ project on Inclusive Sustainable Economic Development (ISED) and Society for Renewable Energies (SRE) in Indonesia will present and discuss their GESI audit tool aiming to improve gender diversity in the sector. In addition, following her keynote, Diane Le Goff will go into a deeper discussion with interested participants on how they established specific partnerships to get more women & girls involved in their trainings. More sessions will follow – for updates see here.

2. WEBINAR AND EXPERT CONSULTATION WITH KURT SCHMID (IBW)
In dual VET, companies typically bear a substantial part of the training costs. This raises the question why companies that are engaged in VET are willing to incur these costs, and to which extent financial subsidies do or can influence this decision.
