The EDIFY_EDU project addresses the skills gap in the sector of Management education with regards to competencies on equality, diversity, and inclusion (from now on EDI), which are more and more needed in a complex and fluid society. The project facilitates the acquisition of EDI competencies and transversal skills for management students and managers in business (in particular targeting medium-sized companies), in order to respond to the societal transformation by setting up a system for skill assessment, learning offer and validation and recognition.
