EYE Italia: Closing the gender gap through innovation and collaboration

In today's article, we are pleased to resume an extremely stimulating collaboration that we have grown as ITER IDEA. This collaboration led us to be presented at the European Parliament in Strasbourg as one of the best projects in the use of Open Data at a European level last June.

Less than ten months later, our commitment to supporting the use of data towards "An economy that works for people" continues with an exciting new stage of the #EuropeanYouthEvent, having been selected to participate in the first #EYE event in Italy!

During the event, We will showcase our platform's renewed look, specifically designed to offer a service through which international communities active on gender equality issues can publish, targeting women across Europe to discover qualifying study and work opportunities within certified organisations for gender equality.

The restyling of the service saw the introduction of new filters to guarantee the platform's accessibility for people with specific needs, encouraging, among others, the integration of Open Data from the Italian network of Anti-Violence Centers D.i.Re - Donne in Rete contro violence.

This milestone in the service's development path was made possible thanks to the collaboration with talented Ukrainian young women. In recent months, they have worked alongside us, leveraging their technical skills, particularly in web development and front-end, bringing expertise, passion, and vision.

Having the opportunity, with our small organization, to support the work of these women has been an honour. Once again, We are grateful for this opportunity to participate in the #EYE event and look forward to sharing our experiences and learning from other participants.

Save the date 17 to 19 May, Forlì, Italy.
