This publication provides a series of success stories developed within the European Commissions EQUAL programme. Each of these projects has made its own unique and important contribution to overcoming discrimination in Europe. They give just a glimpse of what can be achieved through committed partnerships working together towards a common goal.
This European Social Fund Initiative aims to overcome discrimination in the workplace and in accessing employment a key element of the European Unions strategy to create more and better jobs. By promoting a more inclusive labour market, the EU can increase participation in employment and learning, and maximise the contribution of every individual to the economy and society as a whole.
