Objective: The overall aim of WE project is to foster equality of young LGBTI+ people entering the labour market through professional training of stakeholders, increasing the knowledge of non-discrimination principles for the workers themselves and to create an open exchange of workplace-based good practice examples that promote acceptance, diversity and tolerance. The main activities planned are: 1) Analysis of international and local situation regarding discrimination based on sexuality and gender identity at the workplace; 2) Development of an e-learning platform with learning opportunities for both the LGBTI+ population and, relevant professionals such as vocational trainers, school teachers, psychologists, worker council members, occupational medicine physicians; 3) Collection and analysis of good practices to facilitate the exchange of work-based good practices to combat discrimination based on sexuality and gender identity; 4) Train youth LGBTI+ population and relevant professionals to promote diversity at the workplace; 5) Local awareness workshops addressed to the young LGBTI+ population, parents, professionals and policy-makers. The WE PROJECT will deliver: 1) A synthesis report on the state of the art and comparative analysis on discrimination by sexuality at the workplace; 2) An e-learning platform with educative materials for LGBTI+ population and professionals; 3) An interactive toolkit containing good practices facing discrimination at the workplace based on sexuality and gender identity to facilitate their exchange among regions; 4) Policy recommendations. The aforementioned activities will produce the next results: 1) Increased knowledge about legislation and resources to combat discrimination at the workplace based on sexuality and gender identity; 2) Increased awareness, prevention and fight against discrimination at the workplace based on sexuality and gender identity; 3) Exchange of good practices among regions. The WE PROJECT will mainly impact 600 LGBT+ people and 200 professionals (and policy-makers).
