The Education Syndicate held in Plovdiv the first of four focus groups with education professionals within the framework of the project "Growing Equal", co-funded by the Rights, Equality and Citizenship Programme of the European Union.

This is the first phase in the process of assessing the attitudes and needs of primary education professionals on the need to address the negative effects of gender stereotypes. The analysis of the results of the focus groups will provide the basis for the development of adequate tools and online resources to support teachers.
