The aim of the Erasmus +project EUMentorSTEM was to support migrant women with STEM studies to find adequate employment in EU countries. Greek Women Engineers developed a virtual platform with digital mentoring material to be used free of charge as a mentoring tool to support and empower these highly skilled migrant women in the process of finding suitable work. The virtual HUB is based on Moodle e-learning structure and contains useful resources for Trainees, Trainers and guidance professionals who need strategies and tools to support the labour market inclusion of women who face double discrimination as migrants and as women in a male dominated sector. The Trainer’s Kit and Learner’s Kit are both available in 5 different languages (English, Swedish, Italian, Greek, Hungarian), so individuals and organisations can autonomously organise the trainings or be inspired by them. The Virtual Hub assists migrant women with STEM-studies to develop transversal skills and competences in order to fulfil their potential in European labour markets. At the same time, the Hub offers tools and a group work methodology based on mentoring and coaching strategies that help professionals (e.g. career advisors, educators, social workers, HR staff) in supporting migrant women to develop their skills, competences to succeed in a STEM-job in Europe.
