PROJOB PROJOB Since 1990 PROJOB was involved in promoting economic and social independence and e-quality from a human rights perspective, taking into consideration all categories mentioned in Article 13 of the EU Treaty of Amsterdam. These categories, such as gender, race, ethnicity, age, sexual orientation and religious orientation and also the different international instruments to promote Equality, Human Rights and Sustainable development. In these context enhancing non – discrimination in different spheres and levels for citizens in all their diversity is for our organization very crucial. Especially, where there is no uniform definition of the terminology diversity in the Netherlands, (Report of the Parliamentary Research 2006). We exchanged therefore in the past years, different information and in house knowledge, promote partnerships at (inter) national and European level, related to promoting non – discrimination and focus on policies related to target groups which face exclusion or violation of their human or women ‘s rights in the Dutch society by means of for example seminars, workshops, a mobile exhibition and multi annual trans – national programs. Our direct target groups are: Under privileged citizens and residents / priority groups women and girls. Our indirect target groups are: Policy developers, politicians (to be pro – active) relevant civil society NGO’s, the authorities and the Trade Union. PROJOB works project based and is not sponsored by the Dutch government. It is therefore very important to accomplish our aims and objectives we also need the aid of unpaid (retired) professionals from different sectors and levels of education and/ or function. Our Projects Some of our multi annual programs or projects in partnership were summarized: START NOW, EU program EMPLOYMENT NOW To promote economic independency for our target group of women, who are (long term) unemployed to create their own SME ‘s. We also tried with this program to strengthen a culture of organizational strategic empowerment in different dimensions. This project was Co-sponsored by the European Commission under the Employment Now Program. One of the good practices from the results was: “A bag design project”. EU Daphne I, II AND III. The program under EC Daphne l was carried out by PROJOB as the applicant organisation. Partners were TIYE International (NL), Greece , UK and Ireland. In this transnational program we had developed a methodology “BREAK THROUGH”(authors Ann Mannen and Helmut Swart), to prevent Violence against women and girls, including domestic violence and sexual abuse. This methodology was awarded by the EC as one of the best practises, out of 310 projects . Follow up BREAK THROUGH : The leading NGO was TIYE INTERNATIONAL. Partners were : Spain and Sweden. The results of BREAK THROUGH were a toolkit , a train the trainers program and a mobile exhibition. In 2011 – 2012 PROJOB was involved in the EU Daphne III program in partnership with UK/Wolverhampton: EU comparative: Counselling survivors of domestic violence. Training, focus groups, counselling groups and case studies were involved. A manual was developed. ICT and SMES An ESF funded program initiated in Romania (University of lasi and the SONY COMPANY). Our task was toe be responsible for the gender perspective of this project, titled: “SME and ICT”, during the whole project implementation or process.

As a partner at national level of the lead partner TIYE International and in partnership with 4 other member states, a program titled: “TOWARDS A WORKFORCE WITHOUT DISCRIMATION” Final results: A methodology and manual were developed: SOCIAL AND CULTURAL SENSITIVITY IN LABOR MARKET ORGANISATIONS”, Issues focused on were: -How can we enhance non-discrimination at the work place. -How we can take, besides gender discrimination, also into consideration the intersection of other factors of discrimination. - What are the motives and strategic plans of companies and/ or of (public) employers? - What options, visions there are for cultural changes? - How we can create effective intercultural management? - What are the steps to enhance social and cultural sensitivity?
