Educational Toolkits for Fighting Gender Stereotypes 

L2C is participating in a new EU project in collaboration with the Public Policy and Management Institute (PPMI) .

In December 2019, the European Commission’s Directorate General for Mobility and Transport (DG MOVE) contracted PPMI in order to develop educational toolkits for fighting gender stereotypes based on example materials from the transport sector for primary and secondary school pupils. As part of this assignment and in collaboration with educational and transport stakeholders in the EU, L2C will map the existing educational toolkits and freely available online materials addressing gender stereotypes in general and in the transport sector in particular. We will gather and analyse information on current and future occupations in transport and develop and test the two toolkits in schools.

L2C will also design educational toolkits which will be available in all official 24 EU languages to help primary and secondary teachers when organising age-appropriate discussions in class to effectively address gender stereotypes and help children and youths to understand that occupations are not reserved for either women or men. Such an intervention is both needed and timely given the persistent gender segregation in both education and the labour market.

L2C Members Luisa Black (Portugal), Pilar Santos (Spain) & Pascale Mompoint-Gaillard (France) will be involved in the work.
