It has organised a dozen training and participatory meetings from September to December.
The Department of Social Welfare, Solidarity and Equality of the Town Council of La Aldea de San Nicolás has launched an online questionnaire for women and men of this Gran Canarian municipality to provide their first-hand view on the current situation to access and maintain employment, as well as to reconcile professional life with personal and family life.
The questionnaire promoted by the Town Council has been developed by the association Opciónate and is part of the diagnosis with a view to developing measures to support employability and work-life balance within the project La Aldea Emplea, which is funded by the Department of Equality of the Cabildo in the context of the Strategic Framework for Equality ‘Gran Canaria Infinita’.
The digital consultation is already active at the following link: https://www.encuestafacil.com/respweb/cuestionarios.aspx?EID=2849102
It is a confidential questionnaire, which takes less than ten minutes to complete and consists of twenty-five questions offering different alternatives. It is aimed exclusively at residents and/or employees of La Aldea, in order to be in line with the day-to-day reality of the inhabitants of the village and to provide reliable information for the future development of support measures.
The questionnaire will be active until the 9th of October and the results will be analysed together with those obtained in the workshops and interviews carried out in July to elaborate a final report of data, conclusions and proposals that will be presented in a meeting that will take place in mid-December.
In addition, the La Aldea Emplea project includes training sessions aimed specifically at teachers and carers between September and December.
The Councillor for Social Welfare, Solidarity and Equality, Yazmina Llarena, stresses that the questionnaire will help to obtain a snapshot of the reality of employment and work-life balance in La Aldea in order to carry out the initiatives deemed necessary thanks to the contributions and suggestions of the local population, who are invited to participate in the public consultation in order to record their perspective and obtain a broad, clear and detailed overview.
