The overall objective of the DIONE project is to address current and emerging challenges in terms of dismissal of women during and after pregnancy as well as unfavourable treatment due to parenthood leave, by establishing a virtual one-stop-shop, supporting not only women, victims of discriminatory approach, but also competent public authorities & other labour market actors. The project’s specific objectives involve: a) supporting public authorities in tackling discriminatory behaviours in the labour market; b) informing women & employers/HR professionals about rights & obligations; c) supporting victims of discrimination in pursuing their rights.

  • Promote better enforcement of EU & national legal framework against dismissal & unfavourable treatment due to pregnancy/parenthood;
