251 migrant women supported by ATHENA
The AMIF Union Action funded ATHENA project, which just came to an end, was a pilot project implemented for two years by a multi-disciplinary consortium and falls under the ‘Employment’ sectoral area of the EU Action plan for integration and inclusion 2021-2027. Within the framework of the ATHENA project, expert mentors in entrepreneurship provided specific guidance in areas such as the creation of new businesses, development of business plans and strengthening of digital skills, among others, to 251 migrant women.
Through seminars and workshops, migrant women have had the opportunity to receive training in both: soft skills (integration, language, image, networking, business culture, among others) and technical skills (business models, generation of business ideas, business management, project financing, relevant certifications, etc.).
These training activities have provided migrant women with the necessary tools to enhance their entrepreneurial development and have enabled them to acquire fundamental knowledge to face the challenges of the business world.
