Empower Gen-Z women with digital entrepreneurship skills

Generation Z (Gen-Z), also known as “iGeneration”, born between 1995 and 2010, is the most prepared generation for digital technologies and the one more prone to an entrepreneurial and innovative mindset. However, this generation has also been severely affected by the COVID-19 crisis, that exacerbated existing barriers and challenges related with their education, job prospects and work-related incomes. Adding to this is the still generalised gender-related disadvantages and continuous search for equitable opportunities faced by Gen-Z women.

The DIGITAL Z-WOMEN project strategically focuses on strengthening the empowerment of young Gen-Z women with advanced digital innovative and entrepreneurship skills, as well as capacitate the VET (Vocational Education and Training) professionals who work with them.
