The priority to which the project responds is that of social inclusion.

In order to support the active involvement of target women, the participation of professionals identified by the partners is foreseen among: trainers, sociologists, educators, psychologists, teachers and counselors.
To achieve the objectives identified, WE Start! proposes to carry out 4 Intellectual Outputs:
1) a Guide to innovative technological methodologies, methods and tools to promote the social inclusion of women;
2) a Social Learning Platform that can be used and available on digital devices;
3) a Toolkit Assessment (Self-assessment, E-assessment, Peer-assessment) able to measure the skills (basic and transversal) of the target women of the project and any changes that occurred following the realization of the paths through the S.L.P;
4) a Policy Paper which aims to provide policy-makers with indications and suggestions regarding the social inclusion of target women, increasing levels of active participation, methods for facilitating access to vocational training and reducing gender differences in relation to TIC.
