Gender Equality Toolkit for Generation Z - GETZ

 

The main aim of the GETZ project is to facilitate gender equality in sport leadership by educating and empowering Generation Z, to enable them to become the change agents and role models who can breakdown the gender stereotypes and gender barriers for future generations.

 

GETZ Project

 

The objective of the “Gender Equality Toolkit for generation Z (GETZ)” project is to develop, deliver and evaluate an innovative educational resource specifically designed to educate Generation Z on the issues relating to gender equality and equal opportunities in sport.

The GETZ toolkit will consists of a unique set of lesson plans and individual resources specifically designed by the GETZ consortium to bring to life the issue of gender equality in sport in a practical, theoretical and applied way. 

For the purpose of this study we refer to Generation Z as individuals born in the mid-1990s to early 2000s. A significant aspect of Generation Z is the widespread usage of the Internet from a young age. Members of Generation Z are typically thought of as being comfortable with technology, and interacting on social media websites for a significant portion of their socialising.  With this in mind GETZ will be delivered via a Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) to facilitate broad dissemination of the project’s intellectual outputs and results. 

 

This project is co-funded by Erasmus+ programme of the European Union and coordinated by the University of Worcester
