Project Description: WINBLUE is a sustainability-oriented multi-actor project aiming to reduce inequalities and promote equality between men and women in five sectors of the EU Blue Economy. For this purpose, the project launches 5 sectoral WINBLUE labs to involve a relevant community of stakeholders in the design and implementation of tailored gender equality plan models that address unconscious, gender-biased dynamics thwarting the participation of women in the blue economy and their representation in decision-making positions in public and private entities. This activity is supported by implementing coaching programs that enhance those entrepreneurial good practices that engage female human capital, drive competitiveness and strengthen R&I undertakings.

Our Role: AcrossLimits is leading the biggest WP: WP3  STRENGTHEN & CONSOLIDATE – Upgrading skills in technical, management, and sustainable business: supporting women’s participation in governance structures. We will lead in the development and piloting of Gender Equality Plan Models, a train-the-trainer course, coaching program, and toolkit of resources.
