  7. Evaluation Indicators

  8. Case Management Agent: Recognized NGO Located in the Same Territory • 3 Multidisciplinary Teams of Professionals Work On: • social and labor barriers • gaps in basic and labor competencies • gaps in job-search competencies • relations with potential employers

  9. Status of Implementation: Intermediation with potential employers To date: 100 personalized career development plans signed by women 70 successfully completed training 29 processes of intermediation with potential employers, 47 women 6 women contracted by firms

  10. Lessons learned: Quality of the Career Development Plans Construction and validation of the plans with the women is valuable in providing to all an explicit, panoramic vision of the intervention and desired results. Individual plans include derivation to applicable social safety net programs of the government, depending on the barriers detected in the initial social profile. However, every profile and plan had to be revisited – information quickly obsolete; more specific information on barriers needed; women lacked confidence in the agent and intermediation at first

  11. Best Practices • Adequate training in content and format for these women • Sustained, proactive accompaniment in the job search • Identification of other stakeholders that regulate access to job opportunities • Information system for rapid identification of weaknesses in process of intermediation • Regular meetings of multidisciplinary team to ensure adequate balance in the intervention amongst the different disciplines of the professionals

  12. Emerging Challenges High resistance towards applying for jobs - foregoing the stable income of government work programs Gaining confidence of employers to increase participation and eliminate prejudices. Without a mechanism for reducing resistance towards foregoing program related income, repeated desertion of intermediation could undermine confidence of potential employers Actual occupational niches in the territory are rapidly requiring higher levels of competencies than these women possess

  13. Impact on National Policy • National Service for Training and Employment (SENCE) in cooperation with Chilecalifica evaluating incorporation of dimensions of • Evaluation in territories for niche opportunities • Identifying barriers • Personalized career development plan
