Best practices and paths for the socio-economic integration of migrant women in Milan
The event was an important occasion to connect relevant stakeholder who are active on the topic of assisting and integrating women with a migration background in Milan.
Participants worked at simulation activities divided in groups, elaborating personalized support systems for 3 different profiles of migrant women. They also generated policy recommendations and detailed analysis regarding clients’ needs and available services.
After a presentation on the situation of migrant women in Italy (including data and statistics regarding who they are, their employment level, etc.) a group of organisations working with migrant women in Milan presented their good practices: IRENE Association, CRINALI Cooperative, Association Mums at School and ITALMEX. Afterwards, participating split into 3 groups, each made up of a mix of organisations, and, on the basis of a case study, jointly designed an integration path for a migrant woman. Participants to the meeting were the Italian partners plus 11 stakeholders including the above mentioned organisations, other not-for-profit organisations working with migrants, refugees and asylum seekers, two national trade unions (CISL and CGIL), one and the national research centre on migration ISMU Foundation.
