EQUAL Community Initiative is one of the four Community initiatives co-financed by the Structural Funds in the 2000-2006 programming period. Community Initiative EQUAL co-financed by European Social Fund (ESF) is one of the tools for achieving the objectives of the European Employment Strategy (EES). This Initiative supports international cooperation across the EU in developing and promoting new tools to combat all forms of discrimination and inequalities in the labor market. The aim of the Initiative is therefore to develop and promote tools to support members of disadvantaged groups (long-term unemployed, low-skilled, school leavers, elderly people, people with disabilities, ethnic minorities, women, asylum seekers, etc.) who face discrimination or unequal treatment, either directly in employment or job search.

This project is co-financed by the European Social Fund and the state budget of the Czech Republic under the EQUAL Community Initiative.
