MILENA PROJECT in Mantua with 15 local municipalities


 Global Thinking Foundation supports now the 4th edition of the “Milena” Project – “Re/Starting from myself”, a project for helping women to prepare for job interviews and orientation

The Project provides unemployed women living in Mantova and in the region with counselling and coaching courses focused on the emergence of the self, on the self-assessment of motivational drives and professional expectations, which can strengthen the self-esteem of the woman, get her out of situations of isolation, due to moments of difficulty, and orient her to conscious training and work choices.

While shaping one’s own identity, women tend to be strongly influenced by the social dimension in which they live, often constricted by traditional and stereotypical roles. Even in a perspective of emancipation that has its own concrete dimension, women continue to marginally exercise their freedom of choice.

Milena Project intends to establish a path of awareness regarding the participant’s own real potential, empowerment and performance, not only to achieve full social inclusion, but also to gain access to adequate job opportunities.


Pictures of the last meeting of Milena Ri-partire da sè (Re/Starting from myself), with the wonderful women who participated to this initiative, administrators and the team led by Claudia Forini of the Consortium of the Mantova and the Province’s District, Claudia Segre, President of Global Thinking Foundation and Mariagrazia Epifani, counsellor of the Mantova Province.

We would like to thank all those who collaborated and supported the project, thanks to which we were able to see the impact on the participants in terms of participatory awareness of their own socioeconomic role in the city.
