MASP – Master parenting in work and life in a new “work-life synergy” perspective – is a project proposal aimed to reconcile work and private life, support a more equal share of care responsibilities between women and men and encourage a higher participation of women in the labour market. The project will develop and test an innovative work-life balance strategy focusing on a different culture of parenthood. The main purpose is to change the perspective of work-life balance, moving to the concept of “work-life synergy”, highlighting the synergy between “personal” and “working” dimensions of individuals and the importance of the different roles of a person.
In order to foster this “work-life synergy” perspective, the project has to make the key actors involved aware on it and implement a mix of innovative measures targeting citizens and enterprises. In particular, MASP will address: companies and employers; public and employment services’ staff; unemployed pregnant women; employed new mothers and fathers. The project is based on two positive Italian experiences: MAAM and Family Audit. The two experiences will be integrated in a complex urban policy, improved and tested on different contexts, as well as completed with other activities.
This project has received financial support from the European Union Programme for Employment and Social Innovation “EaSI” (2014- 2020).
