My name is Véronique Cochard. I have worked for over twenty years on gender issues and the subject fascinates me. In CORIF, my time is distributed between research on the subject and work with different audiences, employment professionals or trainers , women, teenagers.. .

There are three reasons why I am delighted to be involved in this project:

* Firstly, I am very interested in education and teaching and I am curious to know what exists elsewhere, to learn new ways of doing, enrich myself with contacts of others persons involved in the project.
* Secondly, this project will give me the opportunity to work with other groups and audience that I do not know.
* Finally, I find it very interesting to have actions aimed at low-skilled parents. This project will contribute to restore their image of themselves as first educators of their children. It's also a project about self confidence.

 

My name is Michele Préfaut. I have worked for the CORIF for the past twenty years and I am very interested in issues of gender, orientation, social sex roles ... In CORIF, I am responsible for overall project coordination, evaluation and management. I am also involved in projects with women and guidance and training professionals .

The interest of the project:
CORIF has many reasons to get involved in this project. it will allow us to expand our competencies by working on the deconstruction of gender stereotypes in education. Previously we have worked with young audiences or adults. I think the various researches and actions we have already done will be very useful for the project.

I will personnally be involved
in the project at two levels : firstly I will work on the disign of the toolkit and secondly I will be responsible for the quality workpackages.
