Supporting career paths and work-life balance of women - Methodology Guide
The WomenBridges program provides:
Combined support (training, counseling, and mentoring) for women, in and out of the workplace to achieve work-life balance.
Support to women's careers and bridge opportunities for better/quality employment in a work environment and life more rewarding and positive.
A human centered program to support women in developing their careers whether they want to enter or re-enter employment, or to do a professional change, be entrepreneurs, transform their hobby or idea into a business, or take their job to the next level to a senior role. All this in balance with the personal life.
The WomenBridges Methodology Guide explains how the WomenBridges program works and how it can help organizations and specialists to develop an exhaustive support system for the women they are working with in their communities, at the workplace or in the circle of family and friends.
Within this document the partners in the WomenBridges project provide a framework of methodological guidelines, practical tools, and resources for combined support (training, counseling and mentoring) to the target groups of women, in some cases directly at the workplace.
This guide provides process and recommendations, criteria and instruments to be directly used for enabling a network of Buddies (or the mentors) and starting providing services for the women in need. In this guide you will find how to:

Monitor, evaluate and support the process
Provide resources & network

The WomenBridges project is part of a bigger initiative named Momgotajob, dedicated to fulfilling life for women and mothers in all their roles. WomenBridges provides a comprehensive approach and concrete methodology to support the career paths of young women, especially those in vulnerable situations to achieve economic independence and employment.
At the same time, it develops the competencies of youth workers and NGO teams in implementing and co-develop this approach.
The long-term goal of WomenBridges is the effective inclusion of young women in public life by providing quality and balanced employment as entrepreneurs, self-employed or employees.
